The two Zoom-based Youth Together! Clubs we offer for young people are:
Our Thursday Youth Together! Club, for Disabled young people aged 18 – 25, including those who have completed their education and training but are facing barriers to beginning their career in the arts. This is a forum to meet like-minded young people to share tips with and collaborate. We have a different theme each week of the month: Visual Arts & Crafts on the first Thursday of each month; Filmmaking & Photography on the second Thursday; Creative Writing & Spoken Word on the third Thursday; and Performance on the fourth (and any fifth) Thursday. Every Thursday from 11am-12noon on Zoom.
Our Saturday Youth Together! Club, for Disabled young people aged 12 – 18. We use recycled materials and other items we have at home to create arts and crafts, and also make films, write poetry and draw and paint. This Club is currently taking place once a month on a Saturday from 11am-12noon on Zoom. You can also find Family Activities on our website here.

This group aims to be a hub for young Disabled artists in the UK. With this group we want to create a safe, supportive and inclusive environment where young people can connect, share their thoughts, tips and ideas, and find and promote opportunities that may be beneficial for members. The group especially welcomes young people who are still shielding or are otherwise stuck at home, aiming to create an online community that supports our passion for the arts and helps us to explore and develop it further. Our current focus is on sharing current online offers and activities available for young Disabled artists, and supporting each other to adjust and find new ways forward. We can also support young Disabled people living in isolation to gain Arts Awards, which are nationally recognised qualifications.
This group aims to be a hub for young and emerging Disabled filmmakers, both in the UK and internationally.
