‘Connect Create Converse’ is a youth led event to share routes into creative careers for young people age 13+ who are care experienced, children in need, are engaging with mental health services, are young carers or have special educational needs or disabilities.


Come join us at our event all about creative careers! We’re all about connecting, creating, and conversing about jobs in the arts.

Feeling inspired to follow your creative passions? Or want to know how to access a creative career? You’re not alone! Learn from like-minded individuals and ask all your questions about how to turn your love for creativity into a job.

Whether you’re into art, music, writing or something else entirely, this event is for you. You’ll meet other young creatives just like yourself and hear about the different paths you can take to earn a living doing what you love. You’ll have the opportunity to hear from professionals in the industry and see what arts organisations have to offer you.

It’s going to be a relaxed day full of fun conversations and new connections. Don’t miss out on the chance to feel inspired to start your creative career journey!

What to expect:

  • Take part in creative workshops led by young working artists and learn new skills (including Virtual Reality, Junk Journaling and Music!).
  • Q & A with a panel of professional artists from a diverse range of backgrounds.
  • Meet local organisations and find out more about how you can get involved, from training to careers.
  • Chat with other like-minded creative young people.
  • Free snacks and refreshments provided.
  • Be inspired to fulfil your creative potential!

We encourage professionals within Social Care, Virtual Schools or other supporting bodies to bring young people to this event.

We have a small number of places and it is by invite only, so book early to avoid disappointment!


All young people must be accompanied by a responsible and supporting adult as part of their attendance.
