a bit about us

Here at The Mighty Creatives (TMC), we’re a team of creative arts enthusiasts dedicated to transforming the lives of children and young people through creativity, arts and culture. Our mission is simple: we believe that every child and young person should have access to exciting and inspiring creative opportunities – whatever their background.

Poverty goes beyond just economic deprivation. There is poverty of access and opportunity too. When it comes to arts and culture, young people are missing crucial opportunities to engage with inspiring activities, create imaginative art, and shape successful futures. The Mighty Creatives help to empower young people by combatting poverty and disadvantage, beyond the economic landscape, to ensure that every voice is heard.

We work with young people, education settings, and cultural and corporate organisations, across the East Midlands, to deliver a range of creative programmes.
