Creative Youth

Aiming to “give every child practical access to tuition, experience and participation in art, music, drama and coding by 2022”, the Creative Youth Plan sets out how we will meet the overall Programme objectives for children and young people.

Creative Youth aims to increase opportunities for activity and participation, and to influence public policy around creativity in both formal education and out-of-school settings. We want to create a place where knowledge and creativity are equal partners in the formation of our young people, giving them an opportunity to become creative, active citizens.
