Last week was a very exciting week for Valleys Kids and the Tate Modern in London. Tate Modern opened their new extension and as part of the celebration the BBC featured a report on BBC Breakfast. The film featured young people and adults who are members of Valleys Kids talking about their experiences and it did make Oneil cry.
So if you missed the short piece on BBC you can view it again at:
Being featured on BBC Breakfast as part of the report was very exciting for Valleys Kids and especially the people who took part in the interview. The film was shown three times during the programme and we’ve had a great response.
Valleys Kids is now a partner with Tate Exchange and will be involved in annual exhibitions in the new Tate Modern Switch House, the spectacular new extension to the Tate Modern. This is really thrilling for us and for the growing number of young people and adults who are involved with our artistic work at our four Community Hubs and The Factory, our Arts and Cultural Hub in Porth.
The Factory houses a beautiful gallery space with a full programme of exhibitions as well as a range of professional artists who have studio space in the building.
So if you are in Porth call in and have a look at one of the exhibitions and we’ll let you know when we are at the Tate Modern so you can take a trip to see us in London. The first project will be sometime in 2017.
