Public galleries are safe, inspiring and welcoming for all ages. Young people are essential for the future of art galleries and as the pandemic continues to impact the income, career prospects and mental wellbeing of young people, galleries may need to shift their pitch to ensure these creative spaces are seen as relevant. Learn about Geelong Gallery’s Youth Ambassador Program and Youth Digital Engagement project and the AFL’s ArtsReady program.
