Nineteen Danish young people, aged 17-19, will visit Nottingham for a two week international residency hosted by City Arts.

The fashion design, painting and drawing student attend The Ecological Production School in Copenhagen. It is an independent school that offers an alternative education to young people who, for a variety of different reasons, have not been able to complete a secondary school education. The students learn through practical workshops and real life entrepreneurial experience.

The trip is the result of a new partnership between City Arts and intercollege. The students will arrive on the 8th of April and we have a packed programme of activities and visits planned for our visitors. They will learn how to use our puppets Starchild and The Eternal, visit costume maker Top Draw, spend some time at Nottingham Trent, and see the art exhibits at Nottingham Castle and Nottingham Contemporary.

Throughout their stay, the students will be working in the backyard of our premises at 11-13 Hockley, clearing it up and creating an intriguing temporary installation. Join us at City Arts on Saturday the 18th of April for an event celebrating the young people’s work, and a chance to look around our newly tidied garden.
