Young Creators UK, YCUK, is a not-for-profit community interest company supporting young people aged 16-25. Based in Brixton, close to where we first founded as a collective 5 years ago. A creative, culture and value led social enterprise with a disruptive funding model.
Led and co-owned by an integrational team, Yasmin (age 22) & Christoff (age 39). We develop next generation creative talent whilst delivering unique hight quality cultural and creative services with social impact.
Our mission is to build a diverse creative sector that’s accessible to all, champion marginalised voices and enable youth and community to thrive. We operate under 4 pillars – Youth Services, Creative Agency, Cultural Activation and Value sharing. We are 50% youth owned, 50% female led and 88% of our creatives are from marginalised or underrepresented backgrounds.
YCUK is not just a new voice in the industry, it’s a new way of creative working.
