ART31 Youth Board

The Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25. They steer ART31's governance, and influence arts policy and practice.

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.

Members are recruited on an annual basis. Please get in touch if you’re interested in joining!

Email: if you have any questions.

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’.
