Young People Connected

 

Young People Connected is a pilot one-to-one mentoring programme between A-level students of art, design and technology and creative professionals.

Our first mentees will be students at Stowmarket High School, who are partnering with Smiths Row on this first phase.

 Young People Connected combines advocacy work and one-to-one mentoring between disadvantaged young people with artistic ambitions and arts professionals in Suffolk.

 It seeks to;

  • Nurture new talent
  • Develop a transferable case study about how we support young creative for other arts and educational organisations 
  • Increase engagement in arts subjects post -A Level for young people
  • Develop mentorship skills amongst creative professionals
  • Encourage access to industry knowledge and experience
  • Create artist employment

Our Mentees

Young People Connected prioritizes students whose disadvantaged backgrounds make them more likely to encounter barriers to progress their creative ambitions.

The programme will run across June and July.

Young People Connected is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and The Seckford Foundation.
