Meet the team, find out what we do and how to get in touch.

Young at Art is managed and run by a small, dedicated team of staff. Their work is overseen by a voluntary Board of Directors, drawn from the arts, education, youth and business sectors.

The Board currently has nine members and meets a minimum of five times each year, with a number of sub-committees.

Young at Art is interested to hear from potential new Board members and is particularly looking for applicants with skills in PR and the youth sector.
