All our young artists are referred to us by other partnering organisations, or increasingly by the young artists we already work with.

It is important that we are able to identify individuals who have an already established degree of ability in their chosen creative activity, otherwise we cannot engage in our process. We are putting a lot of energy into developing referral streams that identify individuals whom our one-to-one sessions are going to benefit most, in particular individuals who are not in education employment or training, or are going through personal difficulties or hardship.

If you would like to refer a young artist to work with BIRD in our one-to-one creative sessions we'd love to hear from you! 

What do our sessions 'look like'?
