  • To provide employment and volunteering opportunities for young people
  • To develop new partnerships
  • To support Artists to develop collaborative practice
  • To showcase young people’s cultural activity
  • To develop young people’s artistic practice through mentoring
  • To offer weekly activity for young people to take part in for free at Firstsite
