CALL OUT FOR YOUNG CURATORS

 

Youth Arts Exhibition: BRIGHT LIGHTS (1 Feb 2019 - 9 Mar 2019) will be an exhibition of artwork made by promising young artists aged 11-19, curated by a group of young people, supported by professionals.

The digital submission process, from which artwork will be selected by the young curators to be installed in the exhibition at Arts Centre Washington, is now open.

All artwork, whether selected for exhibition or not, will be uploaded onto a public Instagram account using the hashtag #brightlightsofsunderland and to our website as a record of achievement and so the work can be shared with family and friends.

This is a call out to young people aged 11-19 living in Sunderland or the wider Sunderland area who might like to apply to be a young curator or to submit their artwork for BRIGHT LIGHTS.
