Young People

Through the Lincolnshire One Young People Project we run a young people organising groups called Amplified for creative 12-25 year olds.

What is LOV?

LOV is a network of 11 arts venues across Lincolnshire who work together in lots of different ways to let people know just how much is going on in this vibrant county. LOV jointly commission new work and want to create a more exciting and unique arts offer across the county that is accessible to everyone.

The focus of LOV is currently about engaging young people aged 12 to 25 within the 11 venues as audiences, participants and decision makers.
