Youth Arts Jamboree

This year’s Youth Arts Jamboree, a cultural development programme dedicated to young people, is being launched by the Gibraltar Cultural Services.

The activities offered in the programme are all geared for children and young people aged between 2 and 25 years old. The Jamboree will be held from the 17th February to the 6th March 2020. Some events will continue out of this timeframe, including the Youth Open Day that has been scheduled for Sunday 17th May 2020. 

This year’s programme offers specific workshops for young people in a variety of disciplines, from creative writing and poetry, to drama, music, fine art, movement, horticulture and yoga. The aim is to invest in young people, offering opportunities for growth and development. The sessions will be fun and educational, some targeted at beginners and others more specialised and focused. Some of the events are open to the young public, with others organised with educational establishments and youth groups to maximise the benefit of the session and its reach.

The Mayor, John Goncalvez, will once again lead visits to the historic City Hall, with GCS combining these with art tours of the Mario Finlayson Art Gallery housed within. This year these tours will not be exclusively held within the Jamboree month to allow for more visits to the Mayor’s Parlour.
