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. Find out more on the About Us page.
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.

During lockdown, we delivered 550 'Let's Create' boxes to foodbanks and community organisations in Nottingham. Together with The Mighty Creatives and The Craft's Council, we are now supporting 5 foodbanks to establish Craft Cupboards - building a campaign and receiving donations to keep supplies topped up and give children access to creative materials.
Our Projects page gives brief details of the bespoke projects we are proud to have supported, helping arts organisations connect with communities in new ways since May 2020.
ChalleNGe Nottingham worked with partners across the city to create a series of 2-3 minute activity videos to help improve children and young people's wellbeing.
The videos are by local artists, poets, musicians, youth leaders, teachers, authors, and even gardeners, with the aim of supporting children and young people to develop life-long skills to improve their mental-health and wellbeing using the 5 Ways to Wellbeing as a framework.
