Drawing on our aim to create new, innovative and aspirational opportunities for young people to receive a route into creative industries, Re:Generation 2031 have delivered a pilot creative entrepreneurship programme, Estuary Ventures, in partnership with Kent Business School and Creative Mentor Network. This programme was aimed at supporting FE college leavers with developing and launching a creative business or practise.
ASPIRE (Accelerator Space for Innovation and Responsible Enterprise) at Kent Business School facilitated a series of practical, interactive and engaging workshops with students at Mid Kent College. These workshops included:
Workshop participants were then invited to submit proposals for their creative enterprise ideas in order to be considered for a £3k seed fund from Re:Generation 2031 and 16 weeks of mentoring in connection with Creative Mentor Network.
Five participants have successfully been awarded the seed-funding and mentoring, enabling them to further develop their creative business or project idea.
In Autumn 2023, Turner Contemporary will stage a major community-curated exhibition inspired by Lindsay Anderson’s film O Dreamland. Key to the exhibition is a group of eight Emerging Producers.
