Welcome to the website of The Weekend Academy

The Weekend Academy and the WKD youth project invite you to share our work, visit our exhibitions, and meet our artists via our web-pages. We hope you will be inspired by the ideas, energy and creativity of our artists and participants.

The Weekend Academy was set up in 2002 to open up the facilities of the Byam Shaw School of Art to the wider community. The Weekend Academy, under the WKD banner, is currently working primarily with schools and youth.

We work with our local community in North London, in partnerships with schools, colleges, youth and community groups in the area.

We are proud of our commitment to work with people from a diversity of backgrounds and to celebrate the creativity of all our participants.

We support access routes to education for young people from a wide range of backgrounds.

We hope you enjoy using this website and welcome any feedback you may have. For more information or to talk to us directly, contact us by phone, fax or email.
