We are the Local Cultural Education Partnership (LCEP) Youth Forum and this month we are taking over the design of the Ignite Social agenda.
As young people living here, we are usually unaware of all the creative and cultural people and events happening around us. We want to celebrate all the creativity in Chelmsford.
We want the LCEP to make these more visible to young people so we can all take part and have a say in what’s happening. Through formal education we are limited by what we learn about career pathways and how we understand this.
It’s important for us to see diverse and nonlinear roots into the industries. We want to highlight different people access the creative industries and how this pathway differs from person to person, and we hope you can join us!
We have asked four Ignite Chelmsford members to talk for 5mins each about their experiences and routes into creative careers:
Followed by an inspiring national speaker:
