Next Gen. Creatives
Who are the Next Gen. Creatives?
Attenborough Arts Centre’s Next Gen. Creatives aims to inspire young people, encourage them to help shape the arts centre’s programme and empower them to become the next generation of artists, curators, performers and creative professionals. The name, chosen by the participants, is inspired by the slogan: “we are the next generation dreamers”. The group has been meeting monthly for just over 2 years.
By joining the Next Gen. Creatives young people in Leicester have the opportunity to network with professional artists and practitioners, gain valuable life skills and learn about the various pathways they could take within the arts. So far they have delivered their own workshops, curated their own exhibitions met internationally renowned artists and taken part in artist led workshops.
