What is Youth Platform

Youth Platform gives its members freedom and space to take part in the arts. It works to support young people in Peckham and Southwark, particularly those currently underrepresented in the creative industries, to realise their ambitions.

Members receive mentoring, skills and professional development opportunities, social and wellbeing support, help with portfolio development, and advice and connections towards entry points into the creative industries and beyond. The Youth Platform is also open to and happy to support young people who don’t see themselves working in arts-based jobs.

The Youth Platform works with practicing artists to co-design their own social arts projects and influence Peckham Platform’s wider programming.

Youth Platform is supported by The Portal Trust, Art Fund, and Arts Council England
