Applied Creativity Labs for Young People in Yorkshire

We’re delivering a free Applied Creativity Lab via Zoom for 16-25 year olds to take part in in Yorkshire, working together in groups to address the mental health crisis escalated by the pandemic through March 2021.

About Applied Creativity Labs (ACLs)

Applied Creativity Labs help you to use your creativity to solve real world challenges, by introducing them to experts and facilitating group projects. You’ll meet experts working in the field of mental health, and come up with your own ways to meet real life challenges. You’ll look to develop your ideas, and present them to professionals who can make them happen!

Watch a video description of the ACL process here.

Who’s it for?

Anyone aged 16-25 years old, living in Yorkshire and Humber.

What will I need?

You’ll need to be able to access the Labs via Zoom on a computer, tablet or phone.

What’s involved?

We will begin the process with a professional expert explaining the challenge of finding new ways to improve mental health. Then we’ll do some creative thinking training, and you’ll have access to a resource-bank of ‘experts’ from the NHS, local mental health organisations, business and universities to help you develop a project.
