Black Swan Arts Young Open 2020
Long Gallery and Round Tower Gallery
Available as a virtual tour
Opening for pre-booked visitor appointments early September

The Young Open is our annual competition for creatives between the ages of 8 and 19. We’re always impressed with the variety and vibrancy of work submitted. It is one of our best-attended exhibitions of the year.

Black Swan Arts is proud to collaborate with local education providers. We welcome group submissions from schools and colleges and entries from individuals.
