Creative Youth – Our Aims

Creative Youth aims to enable young people to realise their potential through the arts. The charity allows young people in Kingston and surrounding areas to be involved in innovative, original, ambitious projects and work with artists of the highest quality, often encouraging the artists and participants themselves to take initiatives, risks and push boundaries within their own work. In close collaboration with key partners, Creative Youth aspires to mentor young individuals, entrepreneurs and organisations by providing artistic business and strategic support, allowing the next generation of artists to flourish.

As well as targeting some of the most vulnerable young people in our community, we also reach out to large and diverse audiences as demonstrated by our commitment to using public spaces, street art and digital technology, enabling us to reach new untapped audiences. With the support and continuous involvement throughout the year, of our President HRH the Earl of Wessex, Creative Youth has increased awareness regarding the importance and development of youth arts in Kingston as well as increasing the charity’s and the town’s profile as an incubator for creativity and innovation within the creative industries sector.

The core aims of Creative Youth (CY) are:

-Enabling young people to realise their potential through the arts
-Equipping young people with the skills and confidence to succeed
-Celebrating the achievements of young people in the arts
-Producing high quality programmes that showcase and support young and emerging artists

We are very fortunate to enjoy the active involvement of our President, HRH the Earl of Wessex.
