Westway Arts Squad

Young people at the heart of Westway Arts and Culture

We are building a team of young creative thinkers, do-ers and entrepreneurs, who care about the people, spaces, arts and culture in North Kensington, how they connect to opportunities across London, the UK and globally, and want to help us to make our work ambitious, relevant and future-proof.

Opportunities include paid work at events, volunteering in the community, work experience and shaping new arts projects, resources and buildings.

Portobello Summer Festival was the first ‘assignment’ and eight outgoing young people received training and employment to deliver outreach, hosting, feedback interviews and social media reporting.

The Squad and their projects and assignments will grow and evolve and we will support their development into leaders of the future.
