UpSkills - Creative Practitioners 

We offer an up skills initiative for young adults wanting to train up as creative practitioners. The initiative is designed to enable young creatives to pass on their skills to others in a supported environment. We have recently offered three up skill placements including music theatre, drama, 3d animation and photography. 


Young Critics 

 It is part of Young Creatives commitment to developing young people’s awareness and appreciation of the aesthetic of theatre and performance events.

The Young Critics programme is open to young adults who are interested in watching theatre, dance and music performances and critically discussing, analysing and reviewing work.

During the programme, young people will see high quality productions while developing their critical skills with supported critique training workshops. The programme will culminate with the Young Critics panel at the end of the year.
