ART has been bringing young people together across North Yorkshire.

The 1Community Project is an initiative of Connecting Youth Culture, the specialist arts team that is part of thecounty council’s education services. Funding for the project has come from the Community Fund of Police and Crime Commissioner Julia Mulligan.

CYC has been working with groups across the county, including travellers, refugees, young carers, LGBT young people and victims and perpetrators of hate crime to create art that gives voice to their diversity and identities.

The work will be displayed at local events and exhibitions in different parts of the county before being brought together for a joint exhibition in the autumn.

Mrs Mulligan said: “Over 100 young people have been proactively engaged with this project across seven different areas of North Yorkshire."
