The Hidden City

Barbican Centre

An international arts and learning centre, the Barbican pushes the boundaries of all major art forms including dance, film, music, theatre and visual arts.

The Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning programme supports people of all ages and backgrounds to discover their creative voice and access world-class arts for free.

The mission, Creative Skills for Life, is driven by three core pillars: Education, Employability and Enrichment. From left to right: Barbican Box Music was curated by Max Richter in 2018 and represents our Education strand; Pietro Bardini, Barbican Guildhall Young Creatives alumnus, represents Employability; representing Enrichment is Squish Space, our sensory play residency for under 5s, produced by artists India Harvey and Lisa Marie Bengtsson in collaboration with Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning.
