Creative Youth extends age range to support wider spread of creatives

16.04.2024  |  Creative Youth

Creative Youth is delighted to announce that we will be raising the age of the young people we serve to 30 years old.

Creative Youth are strong believers in creating supportive environments and opportunities for young people and we now feel this should be extended to a broader range of ages that will directly benefit from the creative programmes and projects we run.

We believe that over the last few years, Covid & Cost of Living massively young peoples inhibited opportunities to develop professionally, with many young people now requiring more support later into their creative careers.

Alongside unanimous agreement from the Creative Youth Board of Trustees, co-directors Daniel and Archie have expressed their thoughts about the decision:

“We are delighted to be introducing this positive change at Creative Youth. As two young people in our late twenties, we have lived experience of being emerging creatives through the challenges of the last few years.

Over recent months, we have actively listened to our colleagues, Young Creatives and other emerging artists who feel the support we offer should be extended to people who are still working through what has been a difficult period across the arts sector.

Making this decision together felt like the best way to ensure Creative Youth continues to provide support, resources and a safe environment for the people who need it.”
