We are part of the solution. The secret is in our name. Every year Creative Youth Network gives thousands of young people a taste and thirst for the arts and culture and the joy, life-skills and opportunity they bring.
But we want more.
Creative YOU is our campaign showcasing how we, you and the engaged, emerging and amazing young creatives we support, come together.
We want to reveal how, together, we are ambition, quality, cultural democracy and social mobility in action.
