Colin has been a staunch supporter of our work from day one (when he worked as a Local Authority Education Consultant) and has given us the weight of his backing; most crucially in getting our very first project off the ground which went on to win a national award.

CLP specialise in working with individuals and organisations to plan, deliver and evaluate creative engagements with children and young people.

Bright Sparks : The IY Generation

As a Shadow to the Advisory Board we have formed a group of 15 young people selected from a range of campaign projects we have delivered over the last 4 years.   The role of this group is not only to guide and shape our project aspirations and generally keep us on our toes, but also to embark on new creative research, development and creative projects that we intend to establish!

Get in touch if you want to harness the power of the Bright Sparks!
