THE HIDDEN TALENT: IN CONVERSATION WITH CREATIVE YOUTH
This episode of The Arts & Everything in Between is hosted by Lucy Costelloe who is joined by special guest, Daniel Cartlidge General Manager of Creative Youth. Creative Youth is the biggest youth arts festival in the UK. In this episode, we borrow from Daniel’s insights from working with the youth artists’ council and what the main concerns are for young talent within the sector currently navigating through the uncertainties as presented in the news headlines. With arts funding announcements delayed, rising costs impacting purchasing behaviours, and pressure on resources, Daniel provides a dialogue for artists and young audiences who are often an afterthought and not always a key consideration in terms of opportunities and access to arts and culture.
TOPICS & RESOURCES COVERED IN THIS EPISODE:
- Introduction to Creative Youth https://creativeyouthcharity.org/ and FUSE International Festival
- How are our young artists feeling at the moment? What are their struggles from an artistic performing/curating perspective? Touch upon the young artists’ council.
- As an organisation, Creative Youth speaks on behalf of young artists and has to find a balance in navigating the needs of young people between the ages of 6 and 26. How do we speak and advocate for a segment of artists in which we aren’t a representative of ourselves?
- Equality, Diversity, Inclusivity & Accessibility through the lens of a young person.
We’ll also share some quick ideas that might help you to consider your local artists in a new way
