Discover Young Hackney, Hackney Council’s annual youth arts festival, is back this month for its fifth year.

The festival aims to offer young people in Hackney the chance to build their skills, try something new, challenge themselves, and get to meet at range of professionals from across the arts industry – and 2011 offers more opportunities than ever before.

The festival is designed for young people from the age of 13 to 19, by a team of cultural ambassadors, all recruited from within that age group and from within Hackney.

The festival launched on Friday with the ‘I’m In’ talent show at the Hackney Empire, and continues with more than twenty events across the borough over the next two weeks.
