Meet Samuel, our new Kickstart Projects Assistant

Posted on: February 28th, 2022 by cyEditor

The arts are something that I have been invested in for many years. When I was 10, I took part in my first amateur production which was ‘Les Misérables School Edition’ (directed by Paul Wildman) at the wonderful ‘Mill Theatre’ in Sharnbrook; from that day onwards, I fell in love with theatre and all things creative. The Mill Theatre provided me and so many other youths with a passion for the arts and played a big part in why I am here today doing what I do. Creative Youth is delivering on that very same mission and it is one of the many reasons I love it and the work we do.  

In current years I have turned to the music side of the arts, studying Music Industry Studies at the Academy of Contemporary Music and most currently an MU in Composition for Film and TV at Kingston University. I also am the frontman of the theatrical rock band ‘In Albion’, which has been a fantastic thing for me, combining my love for theatre and hard rock and roll.  

All in all I am obsessed with performing arts and absolutely adore that I can help contribute to the creative endeavours of other young creatives.

It’s been a tough couple of years for us, we’re sure a difficult time for you, and it has most certainly been a testing experience for our young performers and aspiring artists.

The Gala is a celebratory night of great food, awesome performances, and unbridled fun! Starting with a reception at 6.45pm, the evening includes a sumptuous meal, an impressive variety of entertainment from some fantastic young performers and is topped off with an auction and speed raffle!

Mindful of people’s finances, we are keeping the ticket price the same as the 2019 event:-
at £100 for an individual ticket
or £900 for a table of 10

How to book

AMP Kingston is a new project we are aspiring to deliver in 2022, responding to an identified community need to better understand and access the borough’s rich music heritage.  The project will focus on these three areas:

Connection to young people – the translation of heritage to young people within the community. Young people are key to CY’s work so this project will ensure an integral link between past and present

Creativity and Heritage as active co-partners – in RPM, there was less focus on the creation of new art. To activate the legacy of the project, the heritage uncovered will be used as a greater springboard for inspiring a wider variety of arts forms, not only music.

Gigs and live music venues – This new project actively builds on the brilliant resources from Kingston RPM but firmly places young people at the heart, building a sustainable legacy for future generations.

The Programme Manager will provide leadership to ensure the strategic overview, outcomes and project deliverables are achieved at an excellent standard, including monitoring and evaluation.

If you have any queries or questions for us then please don’t hesitate to contact our General Manager, Natalie Chan, on Deadline for this role is Friday 25 February 2022 at 12pm GMT.
