Youth to Collection (Y2C) Project


The Youth to Collection (Y2C) Project showcases works by emerging local artists alongside Newcastle Art Gallery's collection across four unified platforms – a zine, an interactive platform, video series, and a launch event.

The Y2C Project sees the creation of ‘by-youth, for-youth’ content, promoting conversation between Newcastle's emerging artists and Newcastle Art Gallery's collection.

The project was developed by Newcastle Art Gallery's Youth Advisory Group (2021 - 2022).
