Young Creatives

After several months of consultation with local young people, we launched our free weekly Young Creatives group in September 2023, in response to the lack of opportunities for young people in this area who aren’t interested in sports. Young people aged 11-16 join our team every Tuesday evening during term time, to explore different creative projects – so far they’ve had a go at zine-making, cooking, digital drawing, poetry, banner-making and more, as well as been on trips to the Crucible Theatre and to see the Museum of the Moon in Rotherham. The group is youth-led, so we undertake regular consultation and projects are designed around attendee’s interests and ambitions.

In December 2023 the group wanted to exhibit their work, so held their own pop-up art exhibition for friends, family and professional artists in RivelinCo’s shop front on Middlewood Road. The group also get involved in intergenerational trips and projects with RivelinCo, such as building and decorating a little free library for the wider community, and designing decorations and activities for the Spring Disco, a project for younger children who are eligible for free school meals.
