Creative Youth Council – Wysing Arts Centre

Back to Activities

A group of young people (aged 14-18) who come together once a month to connect and create. Organised and hosted by Wysing Arts Centre in Bourn.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • you can collaborate and experiment with artists and make new friends in a safe and supportive space – being around people with similar interests and ideas is validating;
  • exploring your creativity, letting your imagination run free and expressing yourself is a great way to find out about who you are and who you want to be;
  • you’ll be learning new skills and growing in confidence.

“Welcoming, safe space, inspirational, non-judgemental, validating, understanding, experimentation, sweet-toothed youths!”

What to expect

The Creative Youth Council is a calm and friendly safe space where young people aged 14-18 from all over Cambridgeshire can unleash their creativity and share it with people their own age. It’s facilitated by Michaela, who is the Young People’s Programme Coordinator at Wysing Arts Centre.

You could develop new creative projects and events, with the chance to use the ceramics and recording studio and work with artists on lots of different projects. You might want to develop a new podcast or soundscape, make clay sculptures, or plan new events and festivals that could be held at Wysing for other young people to enjoy. Or you could just come to chat, hang out and explore the open spaces and art installations in the grounds.

You set the pace and agenda – it’s not school or college and there’s no pressure or expectation.
