New Creatives

New Creatives is an exciting talent development scheme seeking creatives aged 16-30 to make brand new work in film, audio or interactive media. The programme is co-funded by Arts Council England and BBC Arts.

We're leading the programme in the North of England, and in doing so we support artists aged 16-30 to bring to their original ideas to fruition.

What We're Looking For

We’re looking for creative people with great ideas, and a drive to develop their original concept into a professional short film, audio or interactive media work. We’ll provide training to give you the skills you need to bring your idea to life and get it seen by audiences.

Applicants can come from any artistic disciplines and importantly, perhaps have no artistic background at all. You could be a writer, sound artist, podcaster, dancer, performer, musician, filmmaker, comedian, visual artist, illustrator, animator, poet, storyteller, games designer; or none of these. You could have a cracking idea which we can help you bring to life.

Push Yourself Forward

Even if you don’t consider yourself an artist, so long as you’re passionate about your idea and how you want to explore it creatively, we want to hear from you. New Creatives will be commissioning film and audio pieces in 2020, and we’re looking to find creators and makers who have not yet been represented on screen, on-air or online before.

This programme is co-funded by Arts Council England and BBC Arts.
