The Creative Programme is a variety of arts, music and media projects in youth clubs, schools and other venues.
Since it was established in 2013, Young Bristol’s Creative Programme has delivered an impressive range of arts, music and media projects through youth clubs, schools, Pupil Referral Units and other community venues. With a strong focus on the visual arts, the Creative Programme has included printmaking, puppet making, photography, fashion customising, knitting, woodwork and mural painting.
By introducing young people to a range of arts activities, we give them the chance to develop newfound talents. Young Bristol is an Arts Award registered Centre, delivering 4 out of the 5 available Arts Award programmes. Arts Awards, managed in partnership by Trinity College London and Arts Council England, give children and young people the opportunity to grow their skills and confidence in any art form.
The Awards are designed to promote creativity, leadership and communication skills, encouraging young people to learn to work independently and helping them to prepare for further education and employment.
We are also a registered centre for AQA, an independent education charity that is the largest provider of academic qualifications taught in schools and colleges. AQA’s Unit Awards Scheme provides young people with the opportunity to have their non-academic achievements formally recognised.
