Wysing Young Artists: Pop Up Exhibition

24 Aug 2012–28 Aug 2012


Wysing Young Artists exhibit their work in a pop-up gallery in Cambridge’s Grafton Centre as part of the Changing Spaces scheme. Wysing Young Artists in residence (WYA) is a ground breaking talent development programme for young artists and curators aged 16-24 years old. It helps young people in the Eastern region to develop their arts practice in a professional environment. For the first time Wysing Arts Centre has run the WYA programme as a summer artist-in-residence scheme, giving young people a similar experience to the professional residency artists working there. Over the past month, 14 young artists have had workshops with 10 different artists, used the gallery as their own group studio space and attended the same events as professional residency artists. Young artists have led the direction of the programme over the summer.
