Are you 16-25 and a young artist? 

We want to empower you, as part of the next generation of great artists from all backgrounds, by giving you a head-start in the creative industries. 

If you're aged between 16 and 25, and you think you have the drive and talent to be an outstanding artist, musician, dancer, performer, designer or all-round creative, we'll help you fast track your career. 

This programme gave me a creative environment that brought young talented people together, providing us with the tools, experiences and knowledge to develop.
