Creativity ignites something within all of us.

Through an ambitious youth programme, 11-30 year-olds can take part in creative opportunities or use affordable studio space that can ignite a passion, develop skills or help them to step into the creative industries. 

But many young people are largely unaware of the potential opportunities within our industry, or don’t feel welcome.

That’s why we open up space and opportunities for all young people to be creative – day in, night out. We work with 7,500 thousand young people each year through our creative programmes – we’re aiming to double this number to 15,000 by 2026.  

From putting young people’s voices centre stage, to supporting them to turn their creativity into a career.

I’ve been impressed by the Roundhouse’s work for many years. It is clear from this Creating Futures report that their approach has been very successful in helping young people on their programmes fulfil their potential. The Roundhouse has shown just how important creativity is to young people’s development and the need to invest in creative spaces where young people want to be – places where they can develop their skills, networks and aspirations.
