Creative YOU

Creativity is everywhere. Opportunity is not.     

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. 

Every young person deserves the right to access creativity and development opportunities in the creative and cultural industries.

An immersive series of photographs guaranteed to transport you back to your youth club years. They exude the joy, the freedom, the friendship and community as well as the pathos and vulnerability.

The rollercoaster of emotions that is young people’s lives is revealed by our Artist in Residence project, based in 2019 in Hanham Youth Club, inspiring and enabling young people to frame and present their experiences visually, sparking new skills, creativity and confidence along the way.

Produced in collaboration with photographer Colin Moody and emerging young artist Nick Fogarty.
