ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them. The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.

ART31 is supported by a network of cultural partners across the county, a number of whom have been inspired to adopt the ART31 ethos, including Pie Factory Music, Jasmin Vardimon Company and partners leading the Theatre31 project in Medway and Sheppey.

The ART31 Youth Board have had great success with programming and co-commissioning, working with a wide range of practitioners from across the cultural and creative industries. They have developed the ART31 manifesto and have challenged policymakers and enabled change so that more young people across the county, from a range of diverse backgrounds, can experience high quality arts and culture.
