Watermans Arts Centre promises to be the coolest place for young people to hang out this summer with the launch of URBAN AMBUSH, its summer arts programme.

Led by artists, the Centre will give young people of all ages (8 to 18 years) the opportunity to create music, perform plays and design sculptures among other activities in an action-packed line up of workshops.

As well as being encouraged to let their imaginations loose, learn new skills and have the confidence to express themselves in a creative environment, kids will be able to view film screenings, watch DJs and at the end of every week present their work to parents and friends.

The project aims to bring arts and culture to wide audiences but particularly to the 20,000 young people in Hounslow with limited opportunities to interact with culture outside of school.

The project, funded by the London Borough of Hounslow, local employer Glaxo SmithKline and the Heathrow Community Fund opened to rave reviews last year with young people saying workshops allowed them to express themselves with more confidence and creativity.

As well as the workshops, Watermans will create a photographic record of Urban Ambush to be shown at an exhibition later this year.

URBAN AMBUSH Dates: 28 July - 22 August

Monday - Friday, 9.30am-6.15pm (workshops run 10am-4.30pm, with supervised film afterwards).

Ages 8-18 (split into two age appropriate groups, 8-12 and 13-18).

To book simply call the Watermans box office on 020 8232 1010 for enquiries. Prices start at £120 for a full week, with a 20% discount if you are buying more than one week, or for more than one child.
