Youth Arts Exhibition: BRIGHT LIGHTS

Web – Call out for submissions Web – Call Out for Young Curators

Friday 1 February – Saturday 9 March

Arts Centre Washington’s Youth Arts Exhibition has become a staple in our main Gallery’s calendar as its reputation has built over the last few years. Each year, we receive more and more high quality pieces of artwork which we have always endeavoured to display. This year, we are making a change which will enable us to keep the exhibition sustainable and of the highest quality, showcasing the talent of young people in Washington and all across the Sunderland area.

Youth Arts Exhibition: BRIGHT LIGHTS (1 Feb 2019 – 9 Mar 2019) will be an exhibition of artwork made by promising young artists aged 11-19, curated by a group of young people, supported by professionals.

The digital submission process, from which artwork will be selected by the young curators to be installed in the exhibition at Arts Centre Washington, is now open.

All artwork, whether selected for exhibition or not, will be uploaded onto a public Instagram account using the hashtag #brightlightsofsunderland and to our website as a record of achievement and so the work can be shared with family and friends.

This is a call out to young people aged 11-19 living in Sunderland or the wider Sunderland area who might like to apply to be a young curator or to submit their artwork for BRIGHT LIGHTS.
