CoLab Wakefield

Producing a collaborative art project about how museums and galleries don’t reflect the lived experience and interests of local young people. What kind of work is shown in galleries and museums? Who makes the work and why working class artists need to be seen and heard?

Students (aged 13 to 14) from Castleford Academy are working with Leeds based spoken word artist/writer Simone Yasmin and art therapist Will Jones to co-create a zine and art exhibition, about what matters to them.
