Visible / Invisible: Youth Guides Programme 2022

Show more

Ran as part of The Line’s ongoing initiative Visible / Invisible, our 2022 cohort of Youth Guides undertook a summer outside on the route to engage the public in conversation about works of art, providing information and sharing their ideas. Recruited through local schools and colleges, young people are offered pre-application training on CV and personal statement writing, followed by one-to-one feedback. Once selected, the group received paid training prior to starting work on The Line, which included sessions with artists Larry Achiampong and Gisela Torres as well as heritage tours on The House Mill and a session with Alice Proctor (The Exhibitionist).

We are delighted to share a specially produced film showcasing ‘Visible / Invisible’, a collaborative project bringing together The Line, the National Portrait Gallery and UAL London College of Fashion.

The programme explores themes of identity and representation in the digital and public realms and seeks to tackle the inequality of opportunity within the arts in East London for local young people. The programme has developed through school workshops – participatory image-making, critical thinking and experimentation – to inspire secondary school students to consider creative careers, as well as skills training and paid work through our Youth Guides programme to build young people’s skills and employability.
