Young People and the Creative Arts
Discover what a difference the Creative Society has made to some of the UK’s aspiring artists.
“I have learned the importance of never passing up on any opportunity, irrespective of how mundane, monotonous as it might sound as it might be preparing you for where you need to be.”
“I wish I had found out about The Creative Society sooner and my only wish is that there were more places that support young people in the way that they do.”
“Art lessons at school were terrible, there were no queer people in my school, in my class or in college.”
“I’m interested in creating new works, new experiences, about making theatre accessible, it’s about using the platforms there are to start conversations, to start dialogues, to make an impact, and for people to see things in a different way and in a different light,”
“One of the things I found really difficult to deal with was that I didn’t know anyone who looked like me or dressed like me (wearing a hijab) who was trying to do something similar to me, I felt alienated and out of my depth.”
“When I accidentally stumbled across The Creative Society, I was stuck. I had been working in retail for years and found all thoughts of the future absolutely terrifying.”
