N O I S N S O I I M S I V To build young creatives’ confidence, resilience, networks and skills by providing creative enterprise training, industry knowledge and paid opportunities.

A world where creativity is valued, so that young people feel empowered to do what they love for a living!

S E U VAL

We believe that creativity shapes the world around us and that all young people, no matter their background, should have the opportunity to develop a career in the creative sector, whether that’s landing their dream job or becoming self-employed.

We have partnered with the Prince’s Trust since 2015 to deliver Get Started with Art; a course aimed at 16-25 year olds, not engaged in education, employment or training. This week-long programme is a chance for young creatives to meet new people, develop their artistic talents and be inspired by guest artists. Participants also get the opportunity to gain an industry-recognised Bronze Arts Award and take part in a group exhibition. The work created in response to topics such as Bristol’s graffiti scene and homelessness have evidenced the impact of art in starting dialogues on social issues.

This 2 month training programme was designed to provide the skills and knowledge required to plan and deliver a community event. We recruited a group of 16-25 year olds, giving them the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in events management. The training taught key elements of planning and hosting an event, including promotion, marketing, social media management, content creation, communications, and logisitics. Bristol is renowned for its creativity and diversity, however, feedback from the young creatives we work with showed the sector can be difficult to navigate and some institutions didn’t seem accessible. So, after discussions with our partner organisation, The Diverse Artists Network, YO Arts Fest was born! Our aim was support young people to create an event for other young people, showcasing and celebrating the diversity of creative talent within Bristol. It also aimed to being the city’s various creative organisations together in one space to share their available opportunities to young people. Led by the people it aimed to support, YO Arts Fest had an amazing community atmosphere that was inspiring, inclusive, and relatable, bringing together performers, artists, and representatives from some of Bristol’s most notable creative industries.

“I first found at about PAPER through a work experience opportunity called TAKE PART. After applying, I was offered a place on the programme and was able to work with a group of talented young creatives, planning and implementing an event. The event was useful to fellow creative individuals in a similar position to myself, in showcasing that it is possible to have a career within the creative industry; creative jobs are proper jobs! This message was used as a tagline for the event and it really resonated with me. At that point in my career I was unsure of my direction and felt a lack of confidence in my own abilities. During my final year of uni and post-university, my mental health was at a very low point and being able to be apart of this programme brought me back to my old passionate self. I can honestly say I’m unsure if I would be at this incredible place in my career if it wasn’t for PAPER. Since the first programme I was able to stay engaged with PAPER by becoming a co-worker in their space Redbrick House, which established a structure and space to grow my creative practise. I was also able to take on a paid opportunity through Creative Alignment and be accepted on The Mentoring Club. I am now a part of the team here and work for PAPER to support others in their creative journeys.” - Yasmin Qureshi

In response to the needs of the young people we work with, we decided to start a Creative Advice Bureau where people could drop in and speak to industry professionals. Much like the Citizens Advice Bureau, it was designed to give people the time and space to get one-to-one advice about specific issues they are facing. We wanted to encourage an ‘each one teach one’ philosophy, where creative professionals could pass down information to those just starting out.
