Beatfreeks equips, enables and empowers young people to create positive change in their lives and communities. They offer insight and youth engagement to companies across the UK to create the ‘Institutions of the Future’: more relevant organisations that stay ahead of the curve by embracing diverse ideas & talent now.
From connecting companies with young people to consult on existing ideas, to running think-ins that co-create new ones, the vital community of young creatives work with Beatfreaks to improve business and shape culture.
Work supported by Act for Change Fund
This grant contributes to the salaries of staff who will develop REACT, a novel approach to working with young people, which helps them to mobilise quickly and launch art activism responses to issues in their lives and their communities. It will support young people to run events and campaigns, offer a small grants pot to young people for their campaigns, and work with them to amplify the impact and reach of their work.
