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.
For TMC to fight for the creative voices of children and young people across the East Midlands meaningfully, it is vital we continue to incorporate the views, ideas, beliefs and opinions of children and young people in the leadership of our charity.

If you need support in accessing online meetings, please let us know how we can help!
