Creative Critics with the Princes Trust
In early 2021 twenty young people from across the Suffolk & Norfolk have become culture critics and had their opinions & ideas published. Creative Critics is a creative project valuing young people’s responses to art and culture.
It encourages young people’s deep engagement with art and culture; develops creative and critical thinking. The project has empowered Suffolk and Norfolk young people to become confident skilled communicators and to share their ideas and opinions across the counties. Read a case study from one of our participants.

Creative Critics – Manchester International Festival
We’ve developed our Creative Critics programme in partnership with Manchester International Festival, piloting a fresh new programme specially designed for secondary schools. Partnering with local media outlets including North Manchester FM, Wythenshawe FM, regional radio BBC Radio Manchester and the Dead Good Show and national magazine Voice our reach has been wide and incorporated reviews in audio, video and written formats. Meet our artists.
Our work with Manchester International Festival is funded by Arts Council England.
Below you can listen to the Culture Show on North Manchester FM which featured participants from our programme.
Creative Critics has a successful track record delivering in partnership with three festivals across three counties in England and we are now ensuring future sustainability and growth by bringing the projects development in to our CIC. We are developing further relationships with festivals so do get in touch.
