This is a FREE drop-in art group for young people living in London. We welcome everyone and do all sorts. We make art, film, create exhibitions and discuss current events, as well as visiting other local museums and galleries to further our understanding of contemporary art and exhibitions.
The OG Youth Collective sessions offer opportunities to develop traditional and contemporary art skills. The sessions are led by artists, designers, and OG youth leaders. Covering a range of creative industries including art, design, craft, fashion, digital media, and performance.
Youth Collective members are offered work experience opportunities and youth leadership roles, including programme planning and curatorial input. We support young people in gaining GCSE/AS Level and A Level arts qualifications and CV development and have a yearly exhibition at October Gallery.
If you would like to find out more about the group; other work experience and volunteering opportunities within our education programme for more information, please email Esther Adesigbin, Esther@octobergallery.co.uk

Quotes from young people
‘Through the Youth Collective I have visited galleries and exhibitions that I wouldn’t have visited alone, and had amazing in-depth conversations about art with others in the group. Being a part of the Youth Collective helps me to see art in a different way.’
‘The og youth collective has helped me become much more confident within the world of art, it has opened up so many different networks and opportunities that I wouldn’t be able to get elsewhere.’
‘The OG education team have helped me so much and given me the space where I can express myself freely and creatively and even just talk about something that has been on my mind. Whenever I have been having a bad week the YC is always a place I can detach from everything going around and just have a fun time.’
