For young people Creative Futures Meet Aliyah Find out more about the young artists on our Creative Futures programme. Name: AliyahAge: 19Art form: Film/Spoken Word What made you apply for Creative Futures? Creative Futures appealed to me due to the mentoring and the ability to finally work on a project without academic constraints. After dropping out of university I felt very lost in how to fully utilise all my creative forms and voice. Creative Futures felt like an opportunity for me to experiment & find my own voice. Tell us about the piece of work you’re currently making. I am working on a project depicting identity & culture through performance, visual art, sound & installation. What are you most excited to do on Creative Futures? As a South Asian artist there is a lot of fear instilled within being a creative and so I am excited to go beyond my anxieties and create a personal performance that will exhibit my creative vision. Where do you see yourself at the end of the programme? I hope to see myself with a new found confidence in articulating stories in a nonconformist way, allowing me to find my own distinctive style to further explore & perform as a young artist.
