Young People interested in careers within the creative industries feel that there are no opportunities to gain the sought after experience needed to get a 'foot in the door'. Over 6.7% of the regions workforce is currently engaged in the tourism and creative industies and the Stand Out Creative Agency will make a positive contribution to the area by helping young people gain the skills necessary to help them into employment.


The Stand Out Creative Agency will work with local education establishments, arts organisations, creative operators and artists to engage young people in a series of workshops, mentor sessions and work experience opportunities. This will help them to gain the confidence and experience needed for employment. The project will encourage more young people to get involved in arts provision and give them the confidence to follow their ambition to gain a career the creative industries.
