YoBs Need You!_final

A dynamic group of young people in Bicester have joined forces to create their very own youth action team, ironically referring to themselves as ‘the YoBs’ - the Youth of Bicester. With the motto ‘Changing the community for the better: young people inspiring and being inspired!’ their mission is simple; to make exciting and lively things happen in their community, using creativity as a catalyst for inspiring change.

Drawing on this ethos, the YoBs will be curating a three-day exhibition at Bicester’s Eco Demonstration Building in Garth Park on Saturday 18th-Monday 20th May 2013, featuring the inspiring work of young emerging artists. The exhibition is in collaboration with Artweeks – the Oxfordshire Visual Arts Festival - and aims to showcase a rich, diverse and vibrant range of work.

The YoBs are looking for talented young artists aged 15-21 to be a part of this lively exhibition. If your thing is painting, sculpture, digital art, jewellery, drawing, photography, textiles or anything in-between, the Yobs want to see it! This exhibition will be an amazing opportunity to share and promote your work, gain valuable exhibiting experience and inspire the next generation of artists in Bicester and beyond.

To apply, please send up to four images of your work (in JPEG format, max 1 MB per image), along with a completed application form to
