Don’t worry, I’ll introduce myself.
I’m Becky and I recently joined the fabulous group called YEA Plymouth. I’m the grand-old age of 17 and art is very important to me. From self-expression and enjoyment to prominent political messages, it’s all my jam.
The new generation of poets, painters and potters need a platform to stand up and create an organisation made and run by the ‘flipping youths!’
Fancy an exhibition, workshop or activity run by 11-19 year olds? We’ve got some ideas and skills worth sharing. The artist voice is in ever-changing one, with its adolescence being the most exciting and new. We’re here to encourage and publicize this for all you lovely people!
With our first YEA Plymouth exhibition at the Athenaeum during the Art Weekender 2018 being a beautiful success, we now have made our presence clear in the creative side of our hometown. A showcase of astonishing art by young creators is just a slither of the potential we see in Plymouth and we cannot wait to explore this potential further.
