Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project to launch new website next month

The Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project, a partnership between the fashion label and five of London's art institutions: Hayward Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, South London Gallery, Tate Britain and Whitechapel Gallery, is set to launch its new website next month (June).

The Arts Project sees five panels of young people, all from different areas of London, interacting as part of a peer-led youth forum for the enjoyment and further understanding of art. The panels collectively visit exhibitions at the five partner institutions, where they are given exclusive tours and access to to the inner workings of the art world. The panels is also invited to creative sessions and site visits, led by high profile art world insiders including artists, collectors and museum directors. The new project website will be an evolving record of the project, providing an online community for debate, for showcasing work, for blogs and for reviews.
