Young and Creative logo

Seven professional artists, specialists in a range of media from sculpture to textile, printmaking to photography, were chosen to run workshops at schools and youth clubs in Clapham Park, Lambeth.


More than 200 young artists entered works ranging from painting, sculptures to textiles. The Selection Panel whittled down the entries to 62 pieces which will be exhibited between 9 – 23 July 2005

The project, called 'Young and Creative', is being run jointly by the Bettie Morton Gallery and the Clapham Park Project (NDC) – a resident-led scheme dedicated to regenerating the Clapham Park Estate and the surrounding area.
