Calling young creatives aged 14-19 in the Barnsley area…
Like creative writing or photography?
Interested in people or fashion?
Want to work with professional writers & artists?
Barnsley FREE August 2019 | At Library at the Lightbox (Barnsley town Centre)
If the answer is yes to any of these questions… come and check out the timehop summer sessions at the new Library at the Lightbox central library in Barnsley town centre.
You’ll take inspiration from the brilliant touring exhibition at the Civic – Visible Girls – looking at everything from changing fashions to identity, how youth cultures have changes and what are the expectations you deal with today as young people. We’ll look at all this, and you’ll ever take your own portraits (if you want to of course!)
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.
From the workshops, you can put your work through to be considered for a publication, or to record for a podcast. You’ll also hear about the new Civic Young Creatives Scheme, involving young people in projects through the Civic, have a tour of the new library (which promises to have a wide range of exciting community opportunities in the near future for all ages), and find out more about what’s going on in the region for young creatives.

About Visible Girls
The original photographic series, Visible Girls by Anita Corbin portrayed the search for identity; the street-level self that was part of a tribe bonded by music, fashion and politics.36 years later, Corbin’s Visible Girls: Revisited has called those original Girls back together, viewing those changed women through a modern lens. visiblegirls.com | At the Civic
