The pop up shop was devised and created by young people as part of a partnership project between Circuit Cambridge (a young people’s programme led by Kettle’s Yard and Wysing Arts Centre) and My Gaps, a TCHC youth programme. The team have worked closely together and are collectively the brand ambassadors, product designers, retail managers and everything in-between.

Circuit is a four-year national programme connecting 15-25 year olds to the arts in galleries and museums and working in partnership with the youth and cultural sectors. Led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, it provides opportunities for young people to steer their own learning and create cultural activities across art disciplines. Together, Kettle’s Yard and Wysing Arts Centre are one of six national partners.
