ART31: UPRISING Saturday 15 July at The Gulbenkian


A one-day festival event, created by ART31’s Youth Board (13-25 year olds from across Kent), and focusses on the biggest challenges young people are currently facing, including mental health and wellbeing, employment and education, happening on Saturday 15th July at Gulbenkian.

It’s hosted by Billie JD Porter (BBC3, Channel 4, Vice), and we’ve got loads of speakers and participants including Darren Henley (Keynote speaker, Chief Executive Arts Council England), Dean Atta, Envy, Jamsin Vardimon and loads more. There’s also workshops – spoken word and rap with Envy, animation, dance with New Adventures & Re:Bourne and Pie Factory Music sharing their top tips for involving young people in the leadership of arts organisations. It’s also going to be a great networking opportunity, as there’s so many creative professionals involved with the event, and there’ll be roundtable sessions to meet them and chat about career paths etc. 

As well as all that, there’s performances going on throughout the day (theatre, dance, music, spoken word) and then in the evening there’s the ART31 Awards ceremony, recognising young people’s achievements in and contributions to the arts in Kent. Young people will be receiving awards of £500 to help them realise their arts ambitions. They can either apply themselves for these awards, or be nominated by someone else of any age, and applications are open until Mon 19th June –
