Call to Create is a global collective of cultural organisations that believes it’s time to shout louder about the great art young people make.
WHO WE ARE
We’re made up of over 80 arts organisations from around the world and our numbers are constantly growing:
WHAT WE WILL DO
Call to Create wants to help young people break through the creative glass ceiling by giving them opportunities to learn from established artists and shine a spotlight on the great art they make in a season of dynamic performances in 2015.
WHY WE’RE DOING THIS
Young people tell us they often hit a glass ceiling in the creative world due to their age. But we know that if we combine the new ideas, energy and talent of young people with the experience of established artists we can create some incredible artistic moments that can inspire audiences and other artists.
HOW WE’LL DO THIS
Together, we will enable more young artists around the world by:
- Creating more opportunities and platforms to develop potential, enable collaboration and showcase young talent
- Inspiring more artists and cultural organisations to co-create work with young people
- Encouraging audiences to see shows by shining a spotlight on this work and the positive impact young creatives have on the world around us
In 2015, we will present a season showcasing incredible, socially connected work co-created by young people and established artists. We will platform a wide range of voices, art forms and geographical locations.
This season will include a series of Mass Moments – events bringing together young people, leading artists and arts organisations from across the network to raise their voices and call for recognition for the great art made by young creatives.
If you’re an organisation with a project in development, an artist with a project proposal or a young person looking to find opportunities in your local area, then get in touch – we’d love you to get involved.
