Group of Creative Influencers Teenagers in front of the Theatre in London which is showing Les Miserables

The Creative Influencers are an enthusiastic and creative group of teenagers from the local area. They meet monthly to help improve access and opportunities for young people to engage in arts and culture in Newark. In the last few months, they have volunteered at Scarefest; a fundraising event for Children’s Bereavement Centre, created festive decorations for the upcoming Christmas trail and even searched through the archives to curate their own Autumnal gallery in the museum. They have big plans for 2024 including exciting sports programmes and more accessible resources for museum visitors from other countries. For more information or to apply to be a part of the team (applicants must be 13-17 years old), please contact


Nottingham Cultural Visit


In November the Creative Influencer's went on a cultural trip to Nottingham! One of the activities for the day was toFour Creative Influencers working on making a handheld sign create some thought provoking signs!

Here's what Lena, one of the Creative Influencers, thought about the workshop they did at Nottingham Contemporary: 'After visiting the galleries, we created a manifesto about inclusivity between people from different countries so that our country can be accessed by all. We find this to be an important topic as art should be enjoyed by all'.
