About

We harness the power of the creative arts to change lives. 

The Creative Youth Network and the Arts For Life Programme's mission is to inspire every young person to do more than they ever thought possible.  

We encourage young people to challenge the barriers they face by engaging with the arts. Young people from all backgrounds, including those who are financially deprived or have experienced abuse, and those who live with a disability. We get them involved, thinking, doing, creating… discovering their potential. We aim high: we work with world class artists and high quality youth workers to inspire, challenge, encourage and support. 

The arts on offer include dancing, graffiti, circus skills, DJing, animation, film making, drama, photography, sculpture, live music sessions and more.  

Arts For Life is about making friends, speaking up, joining in, taking the lead, realising your talent and finding your voice. Discovering yourself through a creative process.
