Young People

Work Experience

Wolverhampton Arts and Culture is committed to developing a skilled local workforce and recognises the importance of work experience and what it can offer to young people by creating new opportunities, developing communication and interpersonal skills and increasing self-confidence and teamwork.

We provide work experience placements for GCSE, A Level and students across our venues. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more via [email protected].


ArtForum takes place on every first and third Wednesday of each month from 5pm – 7pm. Our free sessions for young people aged 16-25 offer the chance to work with practising artists, experiment with new art techniques and learn about careers in galleries, museums and archives. You can also work towards your Bronze, Silver or Gold Arts Award (for which you can gain up to 35 UCAS points).

ArtForum youth programs is currently working on projects for the British Art Show 9. To find out more about the programme please email [email protected].


The ARTiculation Prize has been designed to give young people a forum in which they are able to express their ideas on art.

Wolverhampton Art Gallery is one of more than 50 museums and galleries across the UK that participate in this scheme. It is a fun way to engage with arts and heritage and a well-recognised tool to help support educational attainment at A-level and beyond.
