From the Art Assassins to REcreative, young people visiting the South London Gallery can collaborate with artists, make exhibitions, organise events and meet new friends.

The Art Assassins have stayed overnight in a forest, created an evening of art and music and investigated local history and culture. Through REcreative young artists and curators have the opportunity to join the Editorial Board, arrange events in the gallery, write for the website and join an annual film school.

The programme uniquely offers a platform for groups of young people to devise and deliver their own professional projects.

The Young People’s Programme is supported by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Young Roots Heritage Lottery Fund, Southwark Council and the SLG Council.
