A return to Gulbenkian Arts Centre for poet and comedian John Hegley.

With drawings and word play acting centring on family matters – some of them Kentish, with a supporting cast of the frenetic Frenchman with his dog Chirac, John Keats, two sticks of celery and American 19th Century geologist Florence Bascomb who was ordered to conduct her studies behind a screen, so as not to distract her male counterparts. With Eleanor Moreton on Springtime recorder and fiddle – includes a small amount of (basic) French baroque dance.

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.
