Generate, 2013

13 – 19? Love the arts, into film or just want to get creative and hangout with likeminded young people? Generate is the place to be. 

Esther here, Learning and Participation Coordinator at Towner. I have been busy working away getting feedback from young people and designing the next Generate programme, which I am pleased to announce launches next month!

The year-long Generate programme will feature our new Art Space workshops with visiting artists inspired by the current exhibitions on show. We have a range of exciting and diverse exhibitions in the pipeline from painting and sculpture to set design, photography and film. You’ll be rolling up your sleeves exploring sculpture and getting technical with photography!

This year Generate will see digital art forms explored too! If you’ve ever fancied trying out your skills at filmmaking by joining Generate you’ll also have the chance to form part of Towner’s very own Film Crew.

Get behind the camera or hone your acting and presenting skills, there’s something for everyone! Expect art documentaries, interviews with artists showing at Towner, short films set in the local area, vlogs and art tutorials. Get to grips with the filmmaking process and create your own art world buzz! We’ll also be kicking back, munching on popcorn and watching films too.

By taking part in Generate Art Space workshops and being a part of the Film Crew, you will also have the chance to work towards a Bronze and Silver Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification in the arts.

So join the fun, learn new art skills and be part of our team of young creatives!

Generate sessions run fortnightly during term time only starting Saturday 13 June. 

Sessions cost £5 and can be paid termly. Reduced fees available.
