BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art

BALTIC commissioned two creative workshops with 11, 15 year old participants in an Art Fund project around the artist Anselm Kiefer. Combining play, craft, metaphor work, and creative thinking techniques, these workshops resulted in valuable user-generated solutions for attracting and engaging young people. One clear theme which emerged was 'claiming a physical and mental territory within the building'. This theme inspired some truly innovative ideas that shaped BALTIC's thinking and practice on how to shape experiences that will engage young people in the future.
