Access Information

Apply to join Duchamp & Sons

Aged 15 – 24? Interested in art, meeting new people and getting involved in creative projects? We’re looking for new members to join our youth collective Duchamp & Sons.

Duchamp & Sons is a collective of young people from across East London who collaborate on creative projects with artists. They experiment with art, share space for food and conversation, and create exhibitions, events, and new artworks as a collective.

How can I get involved?

Apply here by 10am, Friday 6 September

Eligible applicants will be invited to the Taster Evening on Wednesday 18 September from 5pm-7pm

At our Taster Evenings you can discover what the youth collective has to offer through a workshop with current members. As spaces in the group are often oversubscribed, we also use these evenings to help us select who will be offered a place to join the group*

Who can get involved?

  • No previous art experience is necessary. We’re just looking for people interested in art and collaborating with other young people on creative projects.
  • You need to be aged 15-24 to join the collective. We prioritise offering places to those aged 15-19 so that they can be part of the group for several years.
  • You must be London based. We prioritise spaces for those from East London,  and those from underrepresented backgrounds in the arts.


What does being part of the group involve?

  • Attending regular Duchamp & Sons sessions which take place 2-3 times per month on Wednesdays from 5pm-7pm.
  • Collaborating with peers, artists and other creative practitioners to develop projects.
  • Meeting other young people and making new friends.
  • Gaining new skills and learning about creative careers through making art, curating exhibitions, and producing events and other projects.
  • Taking part in gallery and studio visits across London


*Please note that there are a limited number of spaces available in the collective, and so we are unlikely to be able to offer everyone who attends the Taster Evening a place in Duchamp & Sons. In this instance we will prioritise those aged 15-19, based in East London, from backgrounds underrepresented in the arts, and with least prior access to similar opportunities.
