Holding up Childhood
14 December 2013—12 January 2014
In Gallery One of the Main Galleries, Burlington House
This December, we welcome the Kids Company back to present Holding Up Childhood in Gallery One of the Main Galleries.
An exhibition of work by children and young people mentored by Kids Company, many of the artists have taken inspiration from the Aboriginal works in our Australia exhibition, while others have drawn on themes of loneliness and isolation. Featuring an extraordinary carousel of urban childhood, Holding Up Childhood will give these young people a platform to share their talents, build confidence and take pride in their work. Come and experience the most uplifting exhibition you’ll see this Christmas.
We’re proud to have been working with Kids Company since 2007. Together, we’ve been able to give thousands of vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people access to the arts. Through encouragement and creative play, we help them develop their potential and develop aspirations for the future.
In 2012 we displayed Child Hood - The Real Event
