Our Vision and Values

We deeply value the worldviews, art, ideas and ambitions of young people.

Our vision is for young people in our community to grow up with art and creativity in their lives.

Room 13 enables young people to gain confidence and skills through engaging with the full breadth of the creative process – from experimentation to presentation, as individuals and in collaboration with peers, adult artists and the wider community. In the process they:

  • Set their own creative direction
  • experiment and express themselves through art-making
  • have confidence in their own abilities
  • take responsibility
  • build skills for their futures and belong to a creative community as they grow.

We promote the value of creativity in education and support the development of creative practice in educational and community settings.
