ChalleNGe is a city-wide partnership of arts and heritage professionals, creative practitioners, teachers, youth leaders and young people who work together to take risks and make things happen – ensuring children and young people of all backgrounds living in Nottingham engage in arts and culture, whether at home, in the community or at school.
We support the wider arts sector to use creativity to connect and collaborate with schools and communities, responding to the needs of children and young people (0 – 24yrs). We work with freelance creatives to support training and development, University researchers on our collective evaluation and impact, and we encourage our partners to involve young people in the design and delivery of programmes to increase engagement.
Our Operations Partners have developed a strong community of practice, enabling individual organisations to engage with ChalleNGe’s vision at their own pace and in their own way.

We Are Here is a film project about creativity, how we feel about it, what it means to us and how we can make sure arts venues and spaces are open and accessible to all of Nottingham's young people.
We are excited to be working with local professional film maker Ben Harriott and Creative Engagement Manager Bo Olawoye over the next year to work with community groups and young people from diverse communities across Nottingham.
