ART31KENT is a youth leadership project funded through Gulbenkian’s NPO status, granted by Arts Council England, in addition to funding from 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’.

“GYT encourages everyone; nobody is made to feel they can’t do anything. We look at different styles of theatre (even styles that formal drama educational settings are scared to do). We’re encouraged to have our own ideas and interpretations, and they are always received with high praise” Youth Theatre Member
"My daughter absolutely loves the inventive drama sessions and has become much more confident as the result of going. She now happily speaks in public. Thank you so much!" Youth Theatre Parent
"The youth theatre has been absolutely brilliant for our daughter, and I can’t thank you enough for all fantastic opportunities you have done." Youth Theatre Parent

ART31

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.
