Lewis Smith, [email protected] Curator, said “Young people experience so many transitional journeys. This year we want to give the young people from Lincoln and further afield the opportunity to explore those transitions and how they can change the world.

“Ideal applicants are those who feel they have something that can help shape the future of young people. Change the way we think about our futures, our own journeys — and how we can change the world for ourselves and future generations.”

The deadline for applications is June 18 at 6pm and successful applicants will be notified by June 25. Apply online here.
