YO Arts Fest

Get ready folks! YO Arts Fest is back for 2020!

What is YO?

YO Arts Fest – short for youth opportunities festival – is a one of a kind, youth-led, high energy event linking young people with opportunities in the city.

This year, it’ll be taking place on 24th March, and more information will be available soon including volunteering opportunities!

Creative Enterprise Course

The Creative Enterprise Course is a week-long practical programme to support creative entrepreneurs and encourage sustainable and resilient livelihoods. The course is designed for young creatives, from illustrators to designers, who are already confident practitioners of their chosen creative discipline, but would like to develop a portfolio and build skills to establish and grow a creative business.

Delivered by practicing freelance artists, it will teach you enterprise skills, whilst developing your creative network. You will have the chance to get to grips with essential marketing, finance and management skills, as well the popular Canvas Business Model technique. This ensures that you are able to manage the logistical aspects of your creative enterprise.

Applications are currently closed. Please e-mail hello@paperarts.org.uk with any questions.

The Mentoring Club

The Mentoring Club is a 10 month programme for a small group of young creatives, from illustrators to designers, with artistic ideas that meet once a month to develop their projects. The group looks at ways to increase clientele, generate ideas on getting their work out to a wider audience and develop their branding and online presence. We host a range of sessions, designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to earn a living out of your creative talents.
