A creative New Year for Croydon’s young people

Two new projects designed to let young people unleash their creativity are being launched in the New Year by the council’s youth team.

‘Think it, film it’ and ‘creative art nights’ both take place at the Samuel Coleridge Taylor Centre, 192 Selhurst Road, South Norwood.

The filming sessions are for young people who are interested in working either in front of or behind the camera. Over the course of three months there will be chances to create anything from documentaries and music videos to comedies and films. The motto is, if you think it you can film it.

The ‘creative art nights’, will allow people to spend 10 weeks exploring the possibilities of using mixed media and street art techniques to produce works that will be part of an Easter exhibition.

“I’m really excited by these sessions as they are a great way of allowing young people to explore and develop their natural talents and skills and find new ways of expressing their creative ideas.”

Councillor Timothy Godfrey, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport

Sessions are held every Wednesday from 5-7pm starting on 11 January 2017 and running until 22 March (with a break at half term on 15 Feb).

Places are limited, so to book a slot e-mail either ally.mckinlay@croydon.gov.uk or richard.hale@croydon.gov.uk.
