AMT Youth Programme:
Future Utopia

Utopia always seems like a distant heavenly daydream, not easily achievable but still fun to dream about. I wanted to represent a utopia that was within anyone’s reach.

The quiet amongst the noise.

AMT Youth Programme, in collaboration with Alice Made This, have commissioned six Studio PI artists to create a series of exceptional limited edition prints in support of the AMT Youth Programme, (AMTYP) a Community Interest Company supporting South East London’s young Black men and women with access to work experience in the creative industries.

Many of the young people on board have expressed their positive attitude to the programme, with feedback speaking to having developed more confidence, added to their networks and been involved in new experiences which have been enriching and fed their passion for sharing their creativity.

Masterfully named, the Future Utopia series showcases each artist’s personal vision of an ideal world for these young creatives and is carefully hand signed.

I’m a huge football fan and I love the way football brings different people together. Wouldn’t it be great if people united and had that same passion for causes like; racial equality, gender equality and understanding and respecting LGBTQ+ rights?

What was once our future is soon our past... for me I really like to put the focus on positivity, being proud and seeing your own worth.

My concept for the piece was of a creativity spark contrasted with the silhouettes of young Black people and freedom to create

The words for my piece are diverse community, feeling of oneness, support and nature as a part of us.
