Recently, I wrote a blog for Creative Youth Network, where I work as the Creative Producer. It was in response to the suggestion that those who work in the arts and cultural sector should be prepared to retrain after lockdown.
I'd love to share it with you all here, so please do take a read here - Why retraining isn't the answer.
Creative Youth Network is an incredible charity that supports young people aged 11 - 25 years old, many of who are from the most disadvantaged and diverse backgrounds. The work of the charity provides activities and support for young people who otherwise wouldn't have access to it, as well as youth workers and well-being practitioners to work with young people who are struggling. They're amazing, so to find out more visit their website here. If you're feeling generous and would like to support this local, South West charity this festive period please donate here, or even better, keep the donations coming by supporting them with Amazon Smile here. By doing that, every time you purchase something on Amazon, Amazon will donate to Creative Youth Network and you don't have to pay anything extra! Winner, winner, chicken dinner ;)
