Apollo Project is a new way to experience the Gallery, designed by young people for young people!
Connect with artists, designers, makers and creatives at our monthly events. Hear about their journeys and careers, and learn new skills. Network, ask questions, and be inspired to make art and creativity part of your life.
Creativity, education and wellbeing are at the heart of Apollo Project, with an emphasis on collaborating and partnering with young people to co-create vibrant and fun experiences in the Gallery.
Believe in your potential. Live a creative life. ART MAKES YOU!
