Nottingham Creative Youth Trends is a new open-source report looking at under 25s, their lives and how they are creative in Nottingham.
We think this is the start of something really special: a process through which the young creatives of Nottingham can, themselves, affect change to improve the creative and cultural programmes that are available to them. This is about better-designed programmes, wider opportunities, accessible spaces and ideas that benefit the lives of under 25s in our city for the better.
Pulled together over a few months, the data captured by this report has been gathered by youth partners, arts organisations, schools and under 25s themselves through in-kind support, volunteering and sheer grit and determination. As a result of this amazing show of support over 540 11-25s told us about their lives, their futures and what it means for them to be creative. We're inspired by their insight and vision for our city.
The first Nottingham Creative Youth Trends Report launched on Wednesday 14th March at Nottingham Trent University. The report is now available to download below and we’ll be uploading our videos soon too.
