The Brent Blueprint Collective


Young people shaping the Brent 2020 programme

Part-leadership programme, pressure-group and think tank, the Brent Blueprint Collective is at the heart of Brent’s year as London Borough of Culture. An inspiring group of young people, they are passionate about where they live and where they want to go.

The Brent Blueprint Collective is open and evolving. It started as a group of 30 ‘young ambassadors’ and is now a network of 60 young people aged 16-30. Everyone in the group represents, designs and has their say on the London Borough of Culture programme.

Next year the group will conceive and produce a showpiece project in the programme. It is also a way to find mentoring, visit artistic venues and creative businesses and generally find out more about opportunities, work and developing the skills needed to thrive in creative and cultural work.

The Collective is an innovative new model and will support young people’s creativity in the borough for many years to come. If you live in Brent and you would like to join the programme, please send an email to londonboroughofcultureteam@brent.gov.uk
