The Mighty Creatives was established in 2009 and is based at the heart of the cultural quarter in Leicester. It is a charity which has transformed the lives of many children and young people by supporting programmes in the arts and cultural sector. Our beneficiaries include newly born babies, children and young people aged 0–30 years from across the East Midlands.
We are renowned for leading strategic partnerships, engaging stakeholders, designing and managing programmes of work, undertaking research and evaluation directly and as a commissioner. Our skilled and knowledgeable staff and trustees:
• Have considerable expertise and experience in the fields of education, culture, youth engagement and empowerment. • Manage a robust and financially sound organisation. • Build excellent regional and national partnerships. • Deliver tried and tested, scalable programmes that contribute to positive and lasting transformation for children and young people.
In order to achieve our strategic objectives, we deliver the following programmes:
i. Cultural Education — supporting arts and cultural education for all children and young people.
ii. Creative Communities — supporting social and artistic placemaking through the creativity of children and young people.
iii. Creative Mentoring — working with young people in need who struggle to engage in education – or who are at risk of exclusion or disaffection.
iv. Creative Futures — supporting young people to kick-start their creative careers with the support required to lead creative enterprises and more broadly enter the jobs market
