CREATIVE YOUTH is a charity born out of The International Youth Arts Festival (IYAF), which was established in 2008 with the ambition to create a festival of national importance, showcasing youth arts (5-26yrs) of the highest quality. 

Creative Youth enables young people to realise their potential through the arts. It gives opportunities to young people to be involved with innovative, original, ambitious projects and work with artists of the highest quality, often encouraging the artists themselves to take risks and push boundaries within their own work. Working closely with key partners, it mentors young individuals, entrepreneurs and organisations by providing artistic, business and strategic support, allowing the next generation of artists to flourish.
