Festival programming and projects

The Director arranges all programming year-round, including events, tours in Northern Ireland and beyond, commissions and development projects.

If you have an idea or recommendation for a commission, project or event and would like to discuss it, please contact us. Bear in mind that all work requires advance planning and fundraising and not everything can be acted on immediately.


If you are interested in joining Young at Art as a freelance artist, or event facilitation, please contact us. If you are offered work, you will be required to comply with child protection procedures and provide references, etc.
