Too Young for What?


Join us for an innovative programme of free events, installations and special performances and celebrate the creativity of Jean-Michel Basquiat

Too Young for What? provides opportunities to develop young people’s creativity and showcases a range of new work with and by young people from across east London and beyond. The day explores what Basquiat and his practice means to young and emerging artists through a range of art forms including music, performance, street art and poetry.

Highlights include a talks programme SAMO©, but different and ‘Make a Scene’ discussions co-curated by Poet in the City, opportunities to explore zinemaking, glitch art and photography and Basquiat inspired work by Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning’s community of young creatives, including the Barbican Young Poets, Young Programmers and Young Visual Arts Group.
