A free weekly collective for young people to discuss, explore and create art together.
Transformative Futures is a series of free artist-led workshops for people aged 15-25 that offers an opportunity to learn new skills and approaches to art-making.
Led by a cohort of contemporary artists the programme will offer participants the opportunity to try processes and techniques being explored by artists today including drawing, performance, sculpture.
To coincide with the return of New Contemporaries to Camden Art Centre this year’s workshops will be led by a number of artists featured in the exhibition who will share an insight into their creative processes and practice.
The artists will guide the group through different ideas, themes and provocations exploring a range of processes and techniques. Each session is designed to allow participants to develop new skills, learn about the art world and collaborate with artists and their peers.
The programme is designed for those with an interest in Art, no other knowledge, practical skills or training is required to participate with sessions designed to be inclusive and accessible. We are particularly interested in reaching young people not currently in university education and in the boroughs of Camden, Brent, Barnet and Harrow.
This year the programme of workshops will run on Saturday afternoons from November until Summer 2024 when the participants will design and produce a weekend takeover of Camden Art Centre sharing ideas, concepts and work produced through the year.
