The Harris wants to be more welcoming for young people and so we do things and create things like projects, workshops, events and sometimes exhibitions based on what we want.

The vibe is: no parents or guardians please!

For once we do what we want, when we want and with whoever we want! We get support and guidance from the Harris to explore subjects we are into. 

Express yourself!

We use the arts to express ourselves better and to give us the confidence to be who we really want to be.

We usually meet once or twice a month for projects and try to programme more one off stuff every couple of months. It’s up to you, come and go or come and keep coming!

Art is cool!

We are HYPe (The Harris Young Producers Europe)

We are a young group of creatives who meet every Wednesday at The Harris and over lockdown, via Zoom.

We are currently working on ‘The Preston Project’ which is based in one of the Harris’ exhibition spaces and virtually online. It’s all about exploring what heritage means to young people and diverse groups in Preston.

MORE T’NORTH was curated by the Harris Young Producers. Fifteen emerging artists were selected to bring a collection of fresh, contemporary work to the historical setting of the Harris, to form a bold and colourful exhibition showcasing new northern talents.
