Exciting opportunity for Sheffield young creatives!

Laura from Chilypep

Chilypep is working in partnership with Create Sheffield, Sheffield’s Local Cultural Education Partnership, in their mission to bring arts and culture to as many young people as possible and to remove the barriers that stop young people getting involved. Together we've been working to map the current youth voice across Sheffield, looking at the amazing work currently going on and where to engage with young people.


We are now seeking young creative professionals to take this work further!

We are looking for young creatives to join a 'youth steering group' to work with us to help shape Sheffield's arts and culture scene. Flyers attached with full details!

What young people can get from being involved…

  • Training in youth voice, influencing and organising
  • Support and inspire future young creatives to engage in the arts
  • Link into a network of future career prospects within the arts
  • Increase youth participation within the arts
  • Co-create a digital exhibition of your work
  • Opportunity to gain arts award qualification

Who might be interested….

We are looking for creative young professionals aged 18-25. We welcome all creative types! Coders and makers to crafters, circus performers, musicians, visual artists, animators, writers, poets, beatboxers, dancers, performers, theatres company, community and participatory artists, museums, creators etc….

Taster sessions

We are holding two taster sessions for you to come and see what it’s all about, meet our staff team and see if you want to get involved (you only need attend one session we are just hosting two so we can offer different times to suit!).
