ABOUT KICK ARTS:
The flexi-school runs at the Pitt Rivers museum for 13 weeks in partnership with OYAP Trust. We work with young people who like the arts but who are struggling to engage in mainstream education. During this time we create tailor made projects, which follow the young person’s interests. We explore & respond to the Pitt Rivers Museum collection. We support the young people to achieve an arts award accreditation.

You will be a part of a rich and life changing process. You will also gain invaluable vocational experience working with 'hard to reach' young people.

The project starts in January and you will need to commit to attending every Wednesday the project runs (13 weeks over the course of January to March) as this group of young people respond best to regular contact with the same adults.
