Since February 2023, we’ve been facilitating regular art sessions for young people aged 12-25 in order to provide a space that allows for calm reflection in a relaxed and creative environment.
Through our collaboration with Mind in Kingston and Mind Richmond, we’ve been able to offer young people these sessions for free with an extra hour available for drop in 1-2-1 support sessions with a youth support worker.
We are now delighted to announce that these sessions are now being developed with the support the National Lottery Community Fund. With this funding, Creative Youth will be expanding their community reach in order to bring a broad range of different artistic mediums and activities to each session.
The Community Fund will help fund professional artists and workshop facilitators to run these sessions at an elevated level, with specific focuses and themes each week, as well as further investment in materials.
Mindful Art Sessions will be coming back in the New Year (from 9 January 2024) every Tuesday from 4pm.

We are also delighted to be sharing the culmination of artwork that has been produced by the young people that attend these sessions so far. Artwork will be available to view during FUSEBOX opening hours (Wednesday to Saturday, 11:00 – 18:00), free entry.
