A group of young people will present a day of cultural activities at Kettle’s Yard Art Gallery on the day before it begins building work.

Taking place on July 11th, Circuit Cambridge will transform the empty spaces of Kettle’s Yard to present Circuit Takeover, a day of arts activity curated by young people for young people on the eve of the building’s renovation. Circuit Cambridge is the young people’s programme at Wysing Arts Centre & Kettle’s Yard. Circuit Cambridge is part of the national Circuit programme, led by Tate and funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Circuit Cambridge is part of Circuit, a national programme connecting 15-25 year olds to the arts in galleries and museums. Led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Circuit invites young people to the arts through festivals, partnerships and peer-led programming, particularly those with least access to the arts.

Throughout the day visitors can take part in free creative workshops and watch films screened in the galleries.

Tahira Fitzwilliam-Hall, Circuit Manager said: “The dedication and creativity of the young people in Circuit Cambridge has been immense, and this is a very exciting achievement for them. With just one day before the building works begin, this a great way to send off the old building and usher in a new era of arts and entertainment in Cambridge.”
