Creative Sparks Scratch Evenings – Register your Interest

12.12.2022  |  Projects

Are you a young emerging creative aged 16 -25? Our Creative Sparks night could be the perfect paid opportunity for you to showcase short pieces of work that you or your company have in development.

The works presented can be extracts or works-in-progress ranging from a variety of different art forms and genres that include theatre, comedy, poetry and music. The only requirement is that they’re no longer than 20 minutes in length.

So what are you waiting for, get involved and come and be one of the first performers in our brand new creative space; FUSEBOX!

Our ‘Creative Sparks’ nights are aimed at giving emerging artists and companies the opportunity to showcase short pieces of work that are in development. These ‘scratch nights’ are paid opportunities as part of our Creative Talent Programme and will be showcased as part of the pilot programme for our new creative space opening next year. We will offer each artist/company a £100 performance fee for taking part and access to free rehearsal space prior to the event if required.

To register your interest please click here and fill out this short form and we will be in touch in the new year.

Alternatively, if you would like to submit this application in video form or have any questions at all please contact our General Manager, Daniel.

DEADLINE: Monday 9 January 2023

Our Creative Sparks evenings will take place every Friday in February 2023 (3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th) and will be the first public performances to be held in our new space which is such an exciting opportunity.

Creative Youth have long dreamed of having a creative playground in Kingston, a place for young people to produce work, try new things, learn, share and develop their talents. Now, that dream is becoming a reality. Situated under John Lewis in Kingston, we will launch this space in 2023.

Formerly known as the Undercroft, our new space will be a place for young people, emerging artists, key academic partners, and community organisations locally, nationally and internationally to come together. With innovation, diversity and inclusion at its heart, it will be a multifunctional space, with areas for performance, exhibitions, creative practice, socialising, co-creation and more.

It will also be a home to FUSE International and our Creative Talent artists. The venue will evolve in close collaboration with young people and the local arts community. In short it will be your space, to build your future.

A huge thank you to Riverside Walk for generously sponsoring this event.
