Blackburn Youth Zone Project

Be inspired by Blackburn Youth Zone’s reinvention of waste and help the group give new life to our discarded products in a hands-on workshop

The young people of Blackburn Youth Zone will plan and curate their own exhibitions and pop up shops, showcasing their creative work to the festival audience. Shane Johnstone, an experienced socially engaged artist, has been tasked with helping young people use creative practices in a series of sessions exploring waste as a material for artistic expression as well as our increased social responsibility and impact on the environment.


Join the Youth Zone over the festival weekend to be part of the waste revolution.
