LEVEL Youth Collective

LEVEL Youth Collective is our exciting new group that will give Neurodiverse and Autistic young people access to contemporary arts experiences, outside of school and home.

We’re starting an exciting new group for Neurodiverse and Autistic young people on a Monday evening from 5-6.30pm. Participants will get the chance to work with different artists, materials and digital equipment, but more than that, the Youth Collective will be a space to socialise as well as develop new skills.

We want participants to grow in confidence and gain useful experience from being part of the group. We will welcome participants’ contributions towards any discussions, taking these forward in the decisions we make as a group.

The group will work towards a creative outcome that will be decided amongst the participants, which, depending on the final piece, will be displayed at Level Centre.

Sessions are FREE to attend but space is limited, so please register your interest in advance.
