The Design Museum’s Young Creatives programme is for young people aged 14-19 years. Young Creatives meet and work alongside designers on projects, are inspired to develop new interests and skills and to explore their own creative ambitions. Young Creatives meet on a regular basis to participate in free short courses, regular meetings and weekend masterclasses.

This year the Young Creatives also had a chance to work alongside event curators to design and deliver a public event. The Youth Takeover Day invites other young people to a day of workshops, talks and tours showcasing and sharing the diverse passions and interests of the group and invites the public to join in.

The Young Creatives live exhibition Us? and publication celebrates the work produced by the group and provides an insight into the projects and people involved in this years programme.
