Y.A.P (Young Artists Project)
MOSTYN has been working with a group of Young Artists aged 14-18 on PORTFFOLIO, an artist development programme funded by the Arts Council Wales: National Lottery Fund.
Through a series of artist talks, group discussions, workshops and gallery tours with artists and creative professionals, the programme aimed to develop understanding of professional practice within the culture sector and broaden their approach to creative production.
The Young Artists were invited to propose and produce new work for a temporary exhibition in the Project Space, to actively engage in the process of working as an artist in a professional setting. Presented alongside these new works, are a collection of selected pieces produced during the workshops facilitated by professional artists.
MOSTYN would like to thank all the mentors who have supported the programme: Paul Kindersley, Sarah Ryder, Nick Davies, Phoebe Davies, Stuart Middleton, Manon Awst, Ben Burgis, Angharad Williams, Alice O’Rourke and Rob Battersby. A special thanks to Lisa Hudson, the PORTFFOLIO Programme Coordinator who has supported the Young Artists and mentors over the last year.
