Every week between March and July 2020 our Coronavirus Time Capsule group recorded their experiences of the coronavirus pandemic.

The result is a series of films that are insightful, funny, touching and capture the strange spring/summer of 2020.

The Coronavirus Time Capsule is a project run by Company Three, connecting groups of young people around the world.

The project attracted lots of press attention, with our group getting a particular mention in this article: BFI: Britain on Lockdown.

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.
