Hive Young Creatives Barnsley Half term sessions

Tue 18, Wed 19 & Fri 21 Feb 2:30pm – 5:30pm (let us know if you can’t make all)
The Civic Barnsley The Gallery @ The Civic, Hanson Street, Barnsley S70 2HZ

Are you aged 14 –21 and interested in creative writing, contemporary art or design? If so, this series of free workshops is for you!

Work with professional writers and artists and have a go at generating creative writing (and maybe even drawing) inspired by current exhibitions (by Mark Evans & Paula Chambers) at The Civic Barnsley exploring mental health, portraiture and domestic rebellion through sculpture, photography and drawing.

No experience necessary and you don’t have to think you’re a great writer to come along. All you need is an interest in being creative and trying something new.

Participants will be given the opportunity to submit work to a print publication launched later in the summer, and you’ll find out more about opportunities with Hive and Barnsley Civic for young creatives.

Sessions are free, friendly and relaxed, but places are limited. To avoid missing out, book your place soon by contacting

What you waiting for? Come and be creative this half term!
