Young Barbican creatives take over

An evening of afterhours access to the Art Gallery and unique events programmed by our young creatives exclusively for our Young Barbican members.

Some of our Young Barbican members have responded creatively to the exhibition, Another Kind of Life: Photography on the Margins and programmed an evening of talks, tours and activities which reflect their experiences of community and belonging today. 

This event will offer you an opportunity to engage in a dialogue with other young poets, artists, curators and creatives to develop your own responses to the exhibition whilst taking in the art work around you, with all the exclusivity a Young Barbican private view offers.
