Young Blood Initiative aims to showcase collaborative practice, creating a community where artists can explore other ways to create, acting as a platform where they can experiment to go outside of their usual practice and to play. YBI is not a platform to show good art, YBI is a place to experiment. Instead of simply creating shows that present great works, we provide the opportunity for artists to play.
Freedom to Play
We aim to be a safe place for artists and creatives to challenge, dare and experiment with their usual practice. We want PLAY to be the keyword of organising ourselves, interacting with the YBI community and structuring showcases or events.
We believe that through collaboration, we discover more possibilities in our practice. Collaborating across different art disciplines usually brings unexpected results.
