Young people activate South London Gallery’s exhibitions, events and spaces. We work with young people to create an exciting organise public programme, to that engages with artists and their work and to think about rethinks the ways in which that contemporary art can be inspiring, relevant and fun.
The SLG’s youth collective, the Art Assassins, have stayed overnight in a forest, taken over the our gallery spaces, curated their own exhibitions, investigated local history and culture and made their own artworks. They’ve collaborated with artists, filmmakers, music festivals, radio stations, art galleries, musicians and more!
Art Assassins is open to anyone aged 16-21 who lives, works or studies in south London.
SCHOOLS, COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES
The South London Gallery invites schools, colleges and university groups to explore our exhibitions and take part in workshops exploring the exciting contemporary art programme at the gallery. Please visit our schools page to find out more about visiting as an educational group.
Making Sense brings young people, educators and researchers together to explore themes of inclusion and anti-racism, through youth-led creative collectives, teacher training, conversation and resources. The programme aims to support well-being for teachers and young people, to collectively build a more diverse and inclusive experience of education. Our Digital Platform is a collaborative collection of text, images, videos, podcasts, projects and research relating to the themes explored in Making Sense. This page is always changing and growing, with new content and research being regularly added.
The Young People’s Programme is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Oscar Humphries and Sophie Oakley and the SLG Council.
