Welcome to Young at Art.
Young at Art is one of Northern Ireland's leading children's arts not-for-profit companies and home of the Belfast Children's Festival and Young at Art Events. From its base in Belfast's city centre, Young at Art coordinates not only an international festival and an events agency, but also a wide variety of projects that encourage children and young people under 18 to enjoy the arts.
Young at Art believes passionately that every child should have the right to access exciting and original creative experiences, regardless of who they are or where they come from. As such most of its programme is universally accessible. Behind the scenes work such as the Creative Child engagement programme try to overcome barriers to access - economic, educational, social and physical.
The company believes that arts provision should be FOR children and young people as well as BY children and young people. In this, it promotes child-inspired work by professional artists with an emphasis on performance and exhibition content over participatory activities.
