The Creative Youth Charity has launched their Creative Talent Programme 2021 – 2022. They are searching for three new and exciting emerging or early career companies/artists under 27 to support.

About the Creative Talent Programme

The Programme identifies young and emerging artists and companies who have the potential to become excellent creative practitioners and gives them the artistic, business and strategic support to become flourishing, challenging, exciting organisations of the future. They are particularly keen to support emerging artists or companies from outside of London/ M25 and who identify as D/deaf or disabled or neurodiverse. They also are aiming to focus on underrepresented art forms, so the piece the artist or company wants to develop, needs to include an element of either:

– Puppetry
– Stand-up comedy
– Film or visual arts

The final 3 will receive:

– £2,000 to develop a piece of creative work
– Support across a year of activity with inclusion in International Youth Arts Festival
– Support from a bespoke, art-form specific, industry mentor
– Access to free office space (when available to CY)
– Access to free rehearsal space  (when available to CY)
– Professional development workshops
