This week members of FMTW met with Martin Bright of the Creative Society to hear about the organisation’s work in creating employment for young people in the arts and their struggle for funding over the years.

We also discussed relationships with the Arts Council and ways in which we might be able to feed into the comprehensive spending review for the DCMS .

There was the beginning of a genuinely exciting conversation about possible ways to create employment for 18 to 24 years olds, especially examining how the recently announced Kickstart scheme could be harnessed. Hopefully many more conversations to follow.
