NGV Youth Access

Bringing young people together

NGV Youth Access brings young people together as art audiences, art makers and art ambassadors through a range of programs designed to build their confidence, skills and networks.

These programs offer young people out of the school system and out of work the opportunity to meet and work with art practitioners including curators, visual artists, designers, performers and educators.

Following their involvement, many young participants have resumed their studies or become employed for the first time.

NGV Youth Access has received support from: the Pratt Foundation, VicHealth, Scanlon Foundation and Bennelong Foundation.
