There are a few days remaining to catch a remarkable exhibition of young people’s work produced during Brentford's first ever Creative Summer School.

The Urban Ambush programme took place at Waterman’s Art Centre, in High Street, where 200 participants were given the choice of over a dozen creative projects to get involved with.

There was music and theatre on the stage, urban art graffiti in the car-park, and recycled sculptures on the terrace.

Young people made films, learnt to perform aerial dance; Parkour and Street Dance and created a virtual world of their own.

Examples of all the work produced during the four weeks are currently on display inside the centre’s gallery and will be there only until Wednesday (23).

This exhibition is both a record and celebration of what was created and recognition of the huge and diverse creative talents of the young people who took part.

Chair of the Waterman’s board, Andrew Ward praised the event and said: “The inaugural programme of Urban Ambush Creative Arts activities had been a fantastic experience especially to see the young people transforming and gaining confidence.”

He thanked the partners who came on board to support the initiative: London Borough of Hounslow; Heathrow Community Service; GlaxoSmith Kline and Watermans customers.

Participative Arts is a major part of the Watermans programme and the venue produces over 3,000 events a year, and this couldn’t happen without the support of local people.

Plans are already being made for next year’s Urban Ambush.
