We’re inviting young people aged 15 – 21 who have a connection to Balsall Heath to join us at the start of an exciting journey to form a new on-going Youth Forum at The GAP Arts Project. The group will play an important role in the future direction of The GAP by enhancing youth voice within the organisation and shaping our creative and cultural offer for young people and the local community.

As part of the group, you will meet at The GAP on a weekly basis to:

~ Experience a wide range of arts and cultural activities, and co-produce your own artworks and cultural events at The GAP
~ Reflect on the needs and interests of young people and the local community, and think about what’s going on in the world and how we can critically respond through creativity and culture
~ Gain access to further professional development opportunities such as mentoring, volunteering, training, commissions, etc.
~ Build a supportive and inclusive community for young creatives in Balsall Heath, whilst having lots of fun along the way
