Barnet & Culture for Youth Advocates

What is Barnet & Culture for Youth Advocates? 

Join Barnet & Culture for Youth Advocates and develop your ideas and confidence to make a change. You'll have a platform to explore issues about arts and culture in Barnet that are important to you and your opinions will be listened to.  

What we'll be doing: 

As B&CY Advocates you’ll have access to stimulating workshops with artists. In the past, we have had sessions with Belarus Free Theatre , exploring using the arts as a form of activism and a podcasting session with Art Against Knives. You’ll learn more about creative careers and hear from a variety of artists and people working in the arts about their pathways into the creative industries. It is free to join B&CY Advocates. 

This term, you will work with your peers to design and create your own event, about something you’re passionate about. This will be part of artsdepot’s TogetherFest festival.  

Where and When?  

On Monday 13th December, there will be a celebration event. This would be a good opportunity to come and see what the group has been up to this term. For more info: (Advocates website page). 

Next term, B&CY Advocates will meet on these dates: 10 Jan, 17 Jan, 24 Jan, 7 Feb, 28 Feb, 14 March, 28 March, 25 April, 9 May, 23 May, 13 June, 27 June, 11 July.  

TogetherFest is 28 May.
