In August 2021, with much conversation and reflection, we restarted our youth programme, in person. Whilst everyone was still struggling, the murmurs and shared experiences made clear our young people were heavily impacted. They needed time together. They needed fun. They needed help finding how to be social again. We needed to help them create and imagine the life they want to lead.
Since, we have worked with 122 young people from all across Devon. From Barnstaple to near Axminster, in Exeter, Crediton and Okehampton, and out on ancient sites of Dartmoor, we have had a grand time making art in classic, contemporary and sometimes wild ways. Here is a selection of memories from our 2022 Youth programme activities. Photos By Jim Wileman and Catherine West.
