About the Barbican Young Visual Arts Group
Each year a collective of 16–25 year form joined by their mutual love for the visual arts. Over several evening and weekend sessions they develop their skills and hone their talents whether that’s as a future curator, programmer, marketer, teacher or artists.
With the guidance of Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning producers and industry mentors the group sees how an arts centre like the Barbican works and working together curate their own show. This event is that show.
