Creating and promoting opportunities for young people.

Connecting Notts is a young creatives network in Nottingham – we are artists, performers, writers and musicians involved in arts organisations and community groups across the city. We aim to increase opportunities for all young people (aged 16-25) to connect, create and find support. We influence arts programming and amplify youth voices through our work with ChalleNGe Nottingham.
