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’.  

There are a number of dedicated ART31 groups across Kent. The pilot group started at Gulbenkian, Canterbury, in 2013 and since then other groups have sprung up at Pie Factory Music, Ramsgate and Jasmin Vardimon Company, Ashford, with others in the pipeline. These groups meet regularly to plan ART31 events, as well as develop event management/front of house/marketing skills, meet companies, take part in workshops and see new and exciting artistic work.  MEDIA31SCREEN31Gulbenkian UncoveredART(Y)31TECH31KENT and TECH(Y)31 are part of ART31.
