About Young Norfolk Arts

Young Norfolk Arts provides opportunities for children and young people to create and engage with creativity and culture across Norfolk.

We hold the Young Norfolk Arts Festival (YNAF) – a celebration of creativity and performance by and for young people in Norfolk every year, and the Young Norfolk Visual Arts (YNVA) programme and exhibition. We also run the YNA Collective (YNAC), a volunteer group of 16-25 year olds with an interest in the arts and creative industries either as a hobby or as a career path.
