Ikon’s Youth Programme (IYP) is for young people aged 16-21 who meet regularly to make artwork, work with professional artists, host events and develop their own projects.
IYP aims to:
- Create opportunities to meet like-minded people, peers and creative professionals.
- Programme events for other young people.
- Pioneer youth-led programming supported by professionals.
- Create a collective, to work with others to be creative.
- Work closely with Ikon’s artistic programme and staff.
- Develop contemporary creative practice.
- Share skills and knowledge with others.
For ten years IYP has navigated Slow Boat around the waterways of the West Midlands and beyond. A converted narrow boat, Slow Boat is a unique floating space for IYP, local communities and artists to make and experience art in a stimulating and creative environment. Find out more.
