Summer Drama Project

In the past, In August we have had a Summer Drama Project where you get the chance to spend a week at Gulbenkian to put together a play to be shared at the end of the week for family and friends. This is for 13-19 year olds who are interested in developing their performance skills, having some fun, and creating all the elements needed to produce a play in just 5 days!

This summer we won’t be hosting a Summer Drama Project but if you are interested in finding out more about what we offer, and would like to receive our Art31 Newsletter – please email


You can be informed of future terms by signing up to our ART31 Mailing list: to do this log into your Gulbenkian Website Profile, go to ‘Interests’ and tick ‘yes’ for receiving emails for ‘Creative opportunities for young people from ART31 Kent’.

Funded by the Arts Council and Kent County Council.

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.
