Our Creative Summer Programme

May – July 2018

Murmur is a three month programme of exhibitions, screenings and performances created by diverse and emerging artists from the Creative Youth Network’s programme of courses and projects.

Celebrating new talent and unheard voices, Murmur brings together three programmes that support creative development, progression and individualism for 11 to 25 year olds in Bristol.

Programmes include:

Creative Courses

Creative Futures
