Get creative at home
At London Youth, we believe that taking part in arts and cultural activities has a huge positive impact on young people’s wellbeing, their communication skills and their confidence. We want to make sure young people and the professionals who support them still have the opportunity to access these types of activities, even though they can’t meet in person.
We have been inspired and awed by the sheer volume of new ideas, resources, activities and online content being developed for young people by dedicated professionals across the voluntary sector. Almost overnight, there was a huge outpouring of resources and activities to keep young people engaged in creative activities. Lots of those great ideas came directly from young people, who consistently tell us they need and want opportunities to express themselves.
Inspired by all that creativity, we wanted to bring together some of the great resources, activities, opportunities and online challenges we have seen that relate to creativity and culture. This page is full of ways to experience great arts and culture from home, creative activities young people and groups can get stuck into, and other resources to help our members and young people continue being creative during isolation.
The page will be updated regularly as new content becomes available.
