Trevor Pitt is working with Deirdre Buckley at Craftspace to shape and develop a project that is aimed at diverse young people aged 16 -19 from inner city Birmingham (some of whom are not in education, employment and training) but who have some interest/ability in the arts. The project focuses on ideas of guerrilla craft, DIY Craft and Craftivism - with a view to developing a young people led craft collective which will then organise a series of interventions throughout the city.

The first event took place at the VAAD Gallery, Custard Factory in Birmingham on Saturday 23 January and was attended by over 60 young people.
