Our mission is to inspire the artists, writers and thinkers of the future and support young people’s development of creativity and personal expression.
Designed to stimulate and encourage young people aged 8 – 14 to be creative, explore the arts and get involved in debate these workshops are inspired by Charleston, its collections and gallery exhibitions.
