DEVON'S ONLY DEDICATED YOUTH ARTS FESTIVAL
7TH-9TH JULY 2017
6TH-8TH JULY 2018
In July 2017, TYP launched Devon's only dedicated youth arts festival, TYPify.
Held over three nights in the historic walls of Poltimore House, TYPify welcomes young, aspiring, Devon-based artists from a variety of creative disciplines, to take over Poltimore's crumbling interior and transform the venue into a hive of vibrant activity for the weekend.
In 2018 we extended our remit to include filmmaking and textiles and welcomed groups from Dartmoor, Plymouth, and Torbay, celebrating the talent of our young county with a live audience of over 300 community members.
We hope to bring this glorious festival back to Exeter in the future!

Associate Artists' Board
In order to continue to make sure that we are creating work by, with and for young people, in 2018 we launched our first Associate Artists' Board to aid us in the management and delivery of TYPify 18.
Comprised of four exciting young artists from the Exeter area, our board met regularly to support our core TYP team in securing the festival line up, creating the festival's brand imagery, designing the festival's activities and visual make up, as well as working on their own artistic contributions that were exhibited over the full weekend. You can read all about the process and the festival at Silas's blog!
Whilst we don't have an Associate Artists' Board currently, we're always looking for new ways to work with young people. If you've got any bright ideas or are itching to get involved, drop us a line – that kind of initiative makes us very happy indeed!
