So what exactly is TYC?

We’ve given it some thought and decided that we should probably clarify what exactly we are, and what we are aiming to do.

The Young Creatives is:

  • a platform for young people (aged 25 and under) to showcase their work
  • a means of discovering and supporting emerging talents, as well as providing encouragement and advice from already ‘established’ creatives via our INSPIRED series
  • an opportunity for creative young people to congregate, network and get recognition within their chosen field

What opportunities are there going to be?

  • At the moment we’re still very much a fledgling project, and we’re currently working on building our ‘catalogue’ of creatives
  • However, we are soon planning on offering editorial opportunities (unpaid, but great experience) to budding journalists and writers, and the chance for artists to illustrate their work.
  • We encourage people to send us their ideas for pieces that they would either like to produce, or ideas they would like us to take on board or cover in the future.

Where do you come into this?

  • Follow us on Twitter and spread the word about TYC so that we get as wide a range of talent up as possible
  • Contribute – if you haven’t already contacted us about being featured then we want to hear from YOU! If you are featured, we will then Tweet you – and if you could RT the Tweet containing the link to your post on the blog, that would be brilliant.
  • Constructive criticisms are always welcomed – we’d love to hear what you think of the site, or what you’d like to see covered, what you’re not so keen on and etc.

In short – whilst we’re still in very early days, TYC is an ever-growing project that needs your help to keep expanding!

  1. Hello! I am a third year Visual Communication (Graphic Design) student at the University of Derby. For my final major project I am exploring ways of supporting and promoting young local creative talent. I love what you are doing and I was wondering if it would be at all possible to create a poster/flyer campaign promoting your site and creative community? Of course it would just be a hypothetical creative project, but it would be fantastic if I could base it on an existing successful creative outlet.
    Hope to hear from you soon!
