Westminster Creative Collective 2021

31 July - 31 August 2021


Located on the 2nd floor


This exhibition is one of a series of five exhibitions taking place across Westminster Libraries and the Saatchi Gallery and showcases the work of the Westminster Creative Collective. The Creative Collective was established by Westminster Council’s City Lions and Children’s Services to celebrate the creativity of young people in the borough, providing them with a chance to reflect, share and mark the significant events of the past year.

During the pandemic, young people created artwork in different forms to communicate and express their feelings and opinions. This series of exhibitions showcases and celebrates the creativity of Westminster’s talented young people.

Over 220 pieces were submitted to the Creative Collective and can be viewed in our virtual gallery at: https://citylions.org/students/creative-collective-virtual-gallery/. Of these, 120 artworks were chosen to be displayed in our exhibitions held at Queen’s Park, Victoria, Paddington and Westminster Reference Libraries. A selection of these artworks will be shown in a final exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery during July and August.

The artworks within this exhibition explore four themes:

  • Lockdown
  • Resilience and hope
  • Community
  • Black Lives Matter

We would like to thank the ward councillors for St James’s, Warwick, Queen’s Park and Bayswater for generously supporting the Westminster Creative Collective via the council’s Ward Budget Fund.
