Nottingham Creative Youth Trends 2018 is a new, annual snapshot into the lives of our city’s 13-25-year-olds, offering insight into their interests and creativity, the issues and challenges they face, and their view on how under 25s could radically change our city for the future.

Join us to hear about the key trends gathered from 6 months of research with over 500 under 25s from across Nottingham including:

  • the Creative Top 10 of activities and opportunities under 25s want to get involved with
  • the Top 10 Issues facing under 25s in our city today
  • insight into how best to reach younger audiences in cultural and creative activities
  • details on how to get involved, shape and support Nottingham Creative Youth Trends 2019

You’ll also hear from the team behind Nottingham Creative Youth Trends and how this insight is shaping the programme of DYT [Do Your Thing] – a new creative platform for 13-25s in Nottingham led by Nonsuch as part of ChalleNGe: Nottingham’s Cultural Education Partnership. DYT combines an online magazine to showcase the amazing work made by 13-25s from Nottingham alongside an opportunity and development platform providing free space, commissions, briefs and events in the creative and cultural sector.
