2016 is The Year of Arts & Young People (YAY16) in Birmingham and will see the city’s arts organisations working together to co-ordinate and communicate a cultural offer to children and young people which supports the new, collective Creative Future strategic pledges.
Throughout 2016, the city aims to engage more young people in a range of accessible opportunities offered by theatres, galleries, concert halls, Arts organisations, independent companies, creative industries, schools, colleges, universities and communities.
All partners supporting the Year of Arts & Young People will have signed up to the City’s Cultural Strategy for Young People: Creative Future and demonstrated a commitment to giving young people aged from 0 to 25 access to high quality cultural provision through the 6 Creative Future pledges.
How you can get involved
Are you planning Arts activity for young people aged between 0 and 25 in 2016?
Would you like your activity to be marketed through Birmingham City Council?
We want to get as many young people engaged in The Arts throughout 2016 as possible and to do this we need to know about the offer available throughout the city.
The Cultural Development team are collating information on as many events/programmes/opportunities/activities for young people in 2016 as possible to be marketed as part of YAY16.
These events/programmes/opportunities/activities will be shared online at www.yay16.wordpress.com
