For, but not about kick starts a long term, youth focussed, research- led project that seeks to establish terms for engagement from which to develop working relations with young and emerging visual artists and local communities with African / Caribbean heritage. This exhibition will showcase young artists whilst operating as an active a hub for ideas, information resource within which varied, artist led activity can take place - public participation, performance, talks and discussion, as well as informal drop-ins. This activity will help inform and shape the developing project.
The project aims to tap into the sensibilities of the 'young's' collective social/cultural experience and the influences contemporary youth culture has on themainstream, be it visual information, (the fine arts, fashion, the media) music and dance (hip hop, grime) and literature, to engage meaningful and critical collaboration between the participants and audience.
