PROJECTS & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Creative Youth organises and delivers distinct arts projects in collaboration with various diverse groups of young individuals in order to promote community engagement through the arts. Creative Youth is an inclusive organisation. Our work reaches out to all our communities and the staging of free, outdoor spectacles brings high quality public art for all to enjoy and access. However, this approach is tempered by more targeted work, in a diverse range of organisations and settings, that seeks to engage more vulnerable groups whose experience of the arts is often limited or non-existent.
Our commitment is to ensure that young people, whatever their skills or backgrounds, are involved in high-quality arts projects, engaging with them to promote mutual understanding through culture. This is achieved in a variety of ways such as holding targeted workshops with disadvantaged young people, actively encouraging groups to be involved in projects such as the International Youth Arts Festival as practitioners, volunteers and audience members and developing integrated projects which bring young people from a variety of backgrounds together to work towards a common goal.
