Freestyle puts young people in charge

Freestyle, established by Find your Talent - PUSH, is offering young people aged 13 to 19 years the opportunity to develop creative leadership skills, lead peer to peer evaluative work and work towards arts awards.

17th February 2010

freestyle kicked off this January with a dedicated website for young people (www.findyourtalentpush.co.uk)  and projects in docu-film making, radio production and performance poetry as well as take their Arts Awards - plus - for 16 to 19 year olds – a chance to sign up for the Gold Arts Award Champions Group - who will mentor the freestyle groups. 

freestyle is part of the FYT-PUSH Youth Voice and Influence Programme (and the Advocacy/Legacy Strategy) to develop young people as cultural leaders and champions and to work creatively with them to capture the views of other young people so that this can genuinely influence future planning about cultural provision.

The work will be overseen by Audiences South, youth arts/cultural specialist, Ruth Jones, and Media and Film Company, Cass Productions
