Together, we can unleash the power of creativity

19th-23rd September 2022

Beta-X, Leicester

Imagine if… the arts were taken seriously.

Imagine if… we worked together to build a creative future.

 

The Mighty Creatives’ Youth Board invite you to Without Walls, a weeklong celebration of the power of the arts, created by children and young people of the East Midlands.

The 5-day celebration, taking place from Monday 19th September to Friday 23rd September will be hosted by Leicester’s brand-new community space Beta-X, on Churchgate Leicester.

What is Without Walls?

Inspired by the social topics that really matter to children and young people, Without Walls showcases an immersive and interactive exhibition created by primary and secondary school students from across the region, designed, developed and curated by The Mighty Creatives Youth Board.

Each day will include workshops, provocations and discussions and we invite audiences from across sectors to work collaboratively to make change and shape the future, to ensure arts, culture and creative voices are accessible for every child, everywhere.

The afternoon provocations, facilitated by TMC’s Youth Board, will focus on how we can collaboratively ensure access to the arts across all sectors, but also how we can champion the creative voices of children and young people to make impact on the social causes they care about.

 

Take a look at what the week has in store below…

We encourage people to attend those discussions of most interest.

Imagine if… we took practical steps to inspire creativity everywhere.

Imagine if… we really understood the issues and challenges children and young people face today.

 

Why should I attend?

The Mighty Creatives’ Youth Board invite those working in and outside the arts and cultural sector with children and young people who are…

  • Changemakers, committed to empowering the creative voices of children and young people
  • Advocates of arts, culture and creativity
  • Dedicated to learning about what is important to children and young people
  • Committed to challenging themselves and people they work with to make positive change
  • Ready to work collaboratively with organisations across the East Midlands.

This event will act as the launch of a regional Youth Voice Movement, a safe space where we can support and challenge each other to responsibly listen to the creative voices of all children and young people.
