What is RawMinds?

We are a group of teenagers (age 14 to 19) who meet at Wellcome Collection during school holidays and at weekends to experiment with ideas, get creative, learn new skills and meet new people. So far we’ve curated an exhibition (The Human Emporium), produced the trailer above and a set of podcasts called Raw Emotion, and designed new merchandise for the Wellcome Shop.

By experimenting with art through science and science through art, who knows what we’ll create next?

How can I get involved?

All RawMinds activities are free to join and we have access to amazing facilities, including a state-of-the-art Youth Studio. Our next project is a visual arts and exhibition project taking place over the summer. Applications will open in early May.

We’re looking for enthusiastic young people with bright ideas and an ambition to shape our youth activities.
