Young Creatives

At Phakama we have young people at the core of our artistic practice. Artistic choices are driven by the desire to create work with and for young people, and so we work with a team of Young Creatives (a group of emerging artists aged 16 – 25), who are given paid opportunities to either deliver or support the delivery of all our workshops and projects.

You can become a Young Creative by either joining Rise Up or running a project through the Young Artist Bursary.

Young Creatives are then also able to join the Phakama Youth Board and deliver workshops on our UP programme.
