Be Part of Young Arnolfini and create ambitious art projects with other young people from across the city
Are you interested in experimental and ambitious art-making? What about co-operative creative discussion and working with other people from across Bristol?
Arnolfini are looking for enthusiastic artists and writers aged 16-25 to become part of the Young Arnolfini collective.
We decided to catch up with past Young Arnolfini member Rachael Baskeyfield who was involved with the group's major exhibition, Inhabit in 2016.
"I joined YA mostly as a means to meet other young people working, studying or involved in the arts in Bristol. I was part of the group for a year (Sep 2015 - Sep 2016).
As a recent graduate and new arts professional it provided a structured and supported framework within which to continue my own creative outlets, most importantly as an artist as well as a facilitator/organiser. The peer network, guidance and facilities that an institution like Arnolfini offered was vital for this. The group became a great group of friends and connections made there went on to form the basis for collaboration on other projects.
I would cite YA as one of the best projects that I was involved in Bristol during my time there. It was an example of young people's programme done how it should be! It's been a springboard to next steps in the arts for me and many others."
Rachael is now working as Assistant Curator (Offsite and Education) at Chisenhale Gallery in London.
