Celebrate ART at Tramway: Visual Art Performance

Visual Art Performance: Saturday 7 July, 1pm
Exhibition: 7 July – 26 August, Tramway upper foyer

A group of young artists aged 15–23 worked at Tramway from March – August on Celebrate ART, a project for the Year of Young People 2018 to showcase and celebrate the talent and creativity of young people in and through the visual arts.

On Saturday 7 July the young artists presented a live visual art performance in Tramway’s main theatre, relating a story created by the group. It included guest appearances by young dancers from Horizons, YDance’s integrated dance group for 13–19 year olds, as well as sculptural objects made by the artists.

Following the performance, the sculptures were left in place for the rest of afternoon as an installation in the theatre. Upstairs, accompanying work including screenprints, sculpture and painting were exhibited until 26 August. Watch a video of the performance below.
