Our family-friendly offer

To inspire the next generation of artists and creative producers, New Art Exchange provides a range of opportunities to engage families and young people with creative practice. Our Youth and Family programme has a number of different strands intended to engage a range of abilities and ages. Often inspired by the theme of our exhibitions, all of our sessions combine creativity, learning and fun, to build artistic skills and to encourage a greater understanding of the visual arts.

Our programme of Family Friendly workshops are designed to encourage intergenerational learning and play between young people and their family/guardians. The sessions, suitable for all ages from toddlers to grandparents, incorporate craft, art, dance and theatre.
