The exhibition will include a range of artistic mediums to reflect all the creative disciplines that our young people have been exploring throughout the programme, including short films, photography displays, music videos, VR installations, written work, sketchbooks and more.

The cohort will be sharing works-in-progress as well as finished pieces, and a combination of individual and collaborative work.

About the live performance, Saturday 20 April:

A culmination and celebration of the incredible things our young people have achieved through the LYC programme. From live music and poetry to presentations and Q&As, this will be a special moment for the cohort to express themselves creatively to a public audience.
