Wysing approaches every child and young person as early stage artists, offering programmes equal in quality and approach to those accessed by older artists. We explore art through relevant topics and approaches to empower young people to develop their creative thinking and confidence, providing progression opportunities to sustain engagement.
To keep up to date with opportunities at Wysing please subscribe to our e-bulletin, here.
We actively support disadvantaged children and young people in rural Cambridgeshire, who benefit from community-based outreach programmes and schools’ workshops. We actively seek to give a platform to voices that are marginalised or under-represented. We currently have 4 strands to our youth programmes, in addition to schools activity.
Circuit Routes, enables young people aged 12 - 19 to participate in creative co-produced projects or one of workshops with partner organisations in rural Cambridgeshire and Fenland
Creative Youth Council, a collective of 14 - 18 year olds who meet monthly at Wysing to experiment with new ways of making art and working together to create events and projects
Circuit Cambridge, a group of 18 - 25 year olds who work on creative events and projects with art galleries Kettle’s Yard and Wysing Arts Centre. This programme is currently on pause while we review the next steps this strand of activity.
AMPlify, an alternative learning programme for artists aged 18 to 25 years to test new approaches and ideas through workshops and talks, whilst also having time to develop their own work. AMPlify has run from 2018 - 2022. In 2022 we will support the previous participants through a residency at Wysing in the summer.
