Watch film: MAKE YOUR PLACE
MAKE YOUR PLACE showcases Circuit’s legacy and its lasting influence by allowing young people involved in the project to tell their own story.
In a troubled socio-political landscape, where conditions of austerity hit the youth sector hard, Circuit aimed to create opportunities for 15-25 year olds. United in the belief that art galleries should be diverse and accessible to all, we set out to spark change in our institutions for the benefit of young people.
This film follows the stories of four of the young people involved: Fatimah, Charlotte, Will and Gaby. Fatimah is a part time employee at The Whitworth in Manchester; Charlotte is a young exhibiting artist at Firstsite, Colchester; Gaby is an artist curator of youth events at Tate Britain & Tate Modern; and Will has developed a mentoring relationship with a Senior Curator at MOSTYN, Llandudno.
The film illustrates how art galleries have the ability to support young people, and how this impacted their wider lives.
