The work will tour from Turner Contemporary to the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery and Soft Touch Arts, Leicester and Quay Arts on the Isle of White.

“Each show will feel different with young people getting involved at every stage and artists making new work in response to it” Jane Sillis, Director, engage


The exhibition was based on the idea that more children should have the opportunity to exhibit their work and the opportunity to visit a gallery. It’s about “raising standards and improving lives, and showing to parents and children what is possible…they will be enriched by seeing it.”

This exhibition shows “the dreamland arts education you would want all children to have”

Ian Middleton HMI, National lead for Art, Craft and Design, Ofsted


The exhibition shows work of quality with a range of references and will raise expectations of what is possible for other children. It is an enormous event.
