Young people engage in an exciting programme of projects with artists, designers and other professionals working in the creative industries related to the V&A's collections and headline exhibitions. Some of the young people participating in projects go on to joint CreateVoice, our young people's collective.

April – December 2013
The V&A is supporting Kensal Voices, a project run by SPID Theatre. Kensal Voices focuses on the heritage of council estate Kensal House, a listed building in North Kensington, which has been designed by modernist architect Maxwell Fry.
The V&A believes this is a valuable project to raise awareness of design and architectural heritage and to strengthen relationships between the V&A and local community groups.
As partner museum, the V&A will prepare and deliver research sessions and educational activities that aim to introduce the group to the V&A’s collections, broadening the young people’s knowledge and understanding of design and architectural heritage.
