The Mighty Creatives
The Mighty Creatives is a charity who believe that access to play, creativity and culture is vital to support the growth and development of every child and young person 0-25. We know creative talent is everywhere. We also know that opportunities to be creative for young people are not. We exist to generate more creative interventions through promoting, developing and designing high quality work that has children and young people's creative voice at its heart. We are proud to be working in partnership with UK Kids’ Comedy Festival and together we will continue to fight for the creative voice of all children and young people!
