YOUTH ADVISORY PANEL
Our Youth Advisory Panel formed in 2021. It is made up of 7 dedicated young people aged 16-25. Members work with us to make a co-created programme of training and opportunities.
They also feed into our governance, attending meetings with our board of trustees, contributing to policies, and giving their say on all aspects of our programme.
The panel has created a strong community of young creatives here at Llantarnam Grange and is a space for learning, sharing experiences and skills, and gaining a better understanding of working in the arts. It aims to amplify young people’s voices and opinions within the organisation.
Through this, members get an insight into the range of creative opportunities they can pursue, as well as advice and support from our team in applying to further education, arts opportunities, or creative jobs.
Since forming, the panel has assisted in the curation and installation of our shows; gained experience interacting with the public and selling work at Craft Festival Cheltenham; helped to create our Curatorial Policy and Environmental Action Plan; and are currently working towards their own exhibition, with support and mentoring from our Exhibitions Officer, for 2024.
