Across the capital, London Youth members are delivering high quality work which empowers young people to develop their talents and express themselves. Youth clubs and other youth and community organisations provide young people with brilliant opportunities to get creative.
That’s why London Youth has developed the Young Culture Makers programme. Working with our member youth organisations, the programme supports grassroots youth and community groups to develop their creative arts offer for young people, by working in partnership with artists and arts organisations to deliver inspiring projects.
So whether young people are interested in sculpture, spoken word poetry, theatre, fashion design, music, photography, textiles or something completely new, the Young Culture Makers programme will create opportunities for them to learn and create.
Through our arts programme, we aim to:
Inspire young people to get creative and develop a lifelong passion for the arts.
Give young people opportunities to develop their confidence, resilience, communication skills and other social and emotional capabilities.
Inspire youth and community organisations to deliver high-quality arts activities for young people.
Create networks and links that make the arts more accessible to all young people, regardless of their background.
