The newly-reopened National Portrait Gallery is holding Youth First Look, a day of free activities for young creatives aged 14-21 – including portrait photography workshops with artist Elle Andrews – on 25 June from 11am until 4pm.
The National Portrait Gallery has said that this is an opportunity for young creatives interested in photography, art and music to visit the Gallery as well as draw inspiration from the Collection. There will be another Youth First Look taking place on 2 July and both of these events are drop-in events so no tickets are required.
Elle Andrews specialises in analogue and experimental photographic processes and founded FIX FLASH, an educational collective that offers free photography workshops across London and aims to make the creative industries more accessible.
Other Youth First Look activities include an interactive creative careers workshop with Montana Hall, founder of Run the Check, which showcases paid creative opportunities. For more information visit the National Portrait Gallery’s website.
