The Youth Arts Forum was set up during Island of Culture 2014. The purpose of the forum is to help the Arts Council develop arts projects or initiatives for young people. The forum also plays a key part in how we communicate with young people through schools and their feedback on our work is vital in order for us to remain inclusive and effective.
The Youth Arts Forum is based at the Youth Arts Centre in Kensington Road, Douglas. They currently meet on Thursdays. The Arts Council subsidises one annual off-island trip for members so that they can attend arts events in the UK. In 2016 we will be seeking new members for the Youth Arts Forum. If you are interested in taking part you can contact Quentin Lucas at Q.Lucas@doe.sch.im
