We’re pleased to work with a wide range of partners, both large and small! A selection of our previous commissions and projects are shown below to get a flavour for our work.
Trinity College London, the international exam board: communications and consultation with young people doing Arts Award and other Trinity arts qualifications, Arts Award ambassadors, Arts Award and TrinityTalent alumni celebrations. We have also delivered a number of research projects.
Bridge England Network, creating a national website profiling the voices of children and young people in creative and cultural learning; Amplify.
UK Youth, We were a Digital Champion Hub for the 2020 Microsoft supported Generation Code: Accelerator programme – supporting youth organisations to develop digital methods and networks to engage young people.
Arts Award Supporter, we further built this online network of organisations friendly to young people doing their award.
Arts Council England supports our Voice Outreach project to get more young people reviewing the arts at local level and in 2019 asked us to convene a national group of young people who were consulted on the new strategy – an exciting opportunity for young people to visit the national offices and influence thinking.
CCSkills, the sector skills council, commissioned us to consult young people and promotes our creative careers advice.
Festivals: Voice magazine is Youth Media Partner at Brighton Fringe and press-accredited at Edinburgh Fringe as well as many other arts festivals. We help to run the youth zone at Mozfest the healthy internet festival run by Mozilla.
Mozilla Foundation, This global non-profit commissioned us to consult an international cohort of young people, so we ran an afternoon of workshops ‘Exploring the Impact of Artificial Intelligence‘ with c.50 young people and engaging some great partner organisations including NESTA and the BBC.
Bridge organisations forge links between cultural organisations and education at regional level. We’ve previously worked with several bridge organisations through our youth voice training programme and Arts Award Youth Network.
We’ve also provided young journalists for events with A New Direction and Arts Connect West Midlands, managed youth involvement in a regional arts and education conference with The Mighty Creatives and managed the research for the Royal Opera House Bridge’s youth voice publication.
Local Cultural Education Partnerships bring arts and education organisations together to join-up and improve cultural education for children and young people in their local area. We are working with ChalleNGe (the Nottingham LCEP) to run a Youth Cultural Partnership group through 2020 & 2021.
We work with a number of local authority based organisations to deliver our training including providing speakers and facilitators about developing youth voice for an education conference with the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham.
Our Voice Outreach project has been running with local groups of young reviewers supported by Shropshire County Council, the New Vic (Stoke on Trent) and Trent Bridge Community Trust/Confetti (Notts) with plans to expand these throughout 2020 & 2021.
We’ve worked with several schools and local organisations to support delivery of Arts Award, include remote advisers and assessment.
