Westminster Creative Collective

Westminster Creative Collective

Submissions have now closed. To see this years submissions visit here.

We at City Lions, want to share and celebrate the creativity of Westminster’s brilliant young people and showcase their art, in all its different forms and demonstrate how creativity, can communicate and express opinions, thoughts and feelings. All too often the voices of young people go unheard. The Creative Collective is a chance for young people to use creativity as a tool to communicate. 

Each year, the Collective has four different themes that we ask young people to respond to. Themes are determined by young people, as issues or topics they feel are important or relevant to their lives.

Artwork is currently being shown in Whiteley's Window on 3 Westbourne Grove, W2 4UA and a bigger selection of the artwork below is currently being showcased at Westminster City Hall until 24th August 2023. Votes determine what works will be shown in the final showcase at The Saatchi Gallery.

2023 Themes: 

We would like to thank Westminster Children’s Services, schools, libraries, the Archives Centre, The Saatchi Gallery and all our partners supporting this work. For any questions or enquiries, please email us on
