The Station is our centrally located creative hub based in the heart of Bristol city centre. In 2021 it was host to over 1,300 young people who came through its doors to either access some of Creative Youth Network’s activities or to visit one of our tenant organisations.

Current tenants include Brook Advisory Clinic, Boom Satsuma and Laser Tag to name a few. Learn more about those in the next section ‘Creating Spaces for our Partners & Tenants’.

Of those young people coming through our doors: 

  • 77% said they felt a sense of achievement from engaging in activities we put on ourselves 
  • 69% said they felt they were able to access the person or support they required when they visited 
  • 91% said they trusted the adult assigned to them 
  • 91% said they enjoyed their time at Creative Youth Network 
  • 66% said they felt both safe and accepted at Creative Youth Network 
  • 71% said they felt they could be themselves whilst at Creative Youth Network

We are also very excited about our new Courts project. Recently we acquired the Old Bristol Magistrates Court and 2022 heralds the start of our building and renovation phase of the project.  

With three converted courtrooms, offices, and other working spaces and meeting rooms, The Courts will be an inclusive enterprise hub for new creative voices, new attitudes, new ideas. Young people will be supported by Creative Youth Network staff and tenants of The Courts – creative professionals and enterprises whose tenancy conditions will oblige mentoring, work placements and internships. Each year, The Courts will deliver:  

  • Skills training opportunities for 500 16-25 year old emerging young creatives from disadvantaged backgrounds in Bristol and the surrounding region  
  • Supported enterprise spaces for up to 50 young people setting up their own businesses  
  • Paid internship opportunities for 30 young people   
  • Pathways into the creative sector for young talent  
  • New space for 110 workers from creative industry businesses
