Eastleigh Creative Youth Forum
A creative team
Eastleigh’s Creative Youth Forum is a collective of young people aged 14 – 21 interested in a huge range of art forms and gaining a wider understanding of arts organisations. The group work on a project basis to shape and design projects that focus on amplifying young voices in new and creative ways. Within the Forum, we encourage each individual to bring their own skills and interests into the mix of talents whilst focusing on teamwork and collaboration.
2020 - Past Project
In 2020 we handed our social media channels over to the young people that we work with to share their own creative projects and ideas that matter to them.
During a series of Zoom workshops, members uncovered important topics and themes that they wanted to share during a particularly challenging moment of the pandemic. They virtually collaborated in small groups to share messages of positivity exploring dance, poetry, drawing and storytelling.
2021 - Past Project
In April 2021, the Eastleigh Creative Youth Forum worked in collaboration with a graphics and animation designer to design the #OurPlace project; diving into what it means to be a young person in the world during a difficult time and discovering our place through their eyes.
The design was steered by the decision-making and discussions held during virtual workshops and sessions.
I thought it was really cool how everything came together. The animation turned out great and it was cool seeing all our different ideas somehow made into something cohesive!
How to join
We welcome new members and are always happy to hear from a young person with a passion for the arts whether that’s painting, sculpture, dance, theatre, film, design.
