Young people from Broad Plain & Riverside Youth Project, welcomed renowned street artist Inkie for a masterclass in the art of spray painting, as part of the Vanguard exhibition at M Shed.
Vanguard, in partnership with Vans, has been delivering a programme of art and skateboarding workshops across the city, running alongside the M Shed’s exhibition. The group from Broad Plain took part in a spray painting masterclass, and even got a private tour of the exhibition, visiting the Banksy which has supported the Youth Club to continue to provide inspiring initiatives for all young people across Bristol!
The exhibition has been working with Broad Plain Riverside Youth Project, following the ‘Mobile Lovers’ Banksy which appeared outside the Youth Club in 2014, and is now on display at the M Shed museum.
When asked how Broad Plain & Riverside Youth Club has made a difference one young person said,
It’s something to do every week and it’s been a real confidence-booster with the boxing and everything and it’s got me more active otherwise I might just be sat at home.”
Another young person added: “It’s a good opportunity to meet your friends and people you don’t know who go to your school. You get to know them better and have friendships with them. It’s a good opportunity to look at things you might be interested in and in the future you might want to do it more.”
