The Courts Youth Steering Group

The Courts will become an enterprise hub in Bristol for young people and creative businesses, where we learn and share expertise. 

We aim to make this space positive, creative, and inspiring. To keep young people at the heart of the decision making, we have a youth steering group, who will make decisions for the space.

They are creating art, managing events, learning more about the history of the building to bring the space to life and make decisions on how we can make this a valuable space for young people and creatives.

Creative Youth Network is looking to regenerate the Old Magistrates Courts into a unique professional hub for young people and the creative industries. We are looking for young people enthusiastic and willing to join our steering group. Make your voice heard for the future of Bristol!


We are looking for young people from diverse backgrounds to represent a variety of communities and creative interests and be part of the decision making process.

The steering group will meet every two weeks to:

  • discuss ideas
  • visit other creative spaces in Bristol and beyond! 
  • meet youth groups and creative leading experts from local and national creative industries.

The group will be the voice of the young people in Bristol and help make decisions to design and develop the Old Magistrates Court space with court rooms and prison cells transforming the building into a thriving creative environment for younger generations to network, build experiences and work alongside creative professionals.

We'll cover your travel expenses and we welcome applications from those facing barriers to accessing careers in the creative industries, alongside those who are just interested in the project.
