About New Creatives

Talent development scheme New Creatives will, over two years, give 500 artists aged 16-30 the chance to develop their technical and creative skills and the opportunity to have their New Creatives commissions broadcast on BBC platforms.

The pieces commissioned in this first tranche include drama, animation, spoken work, soundscapes and dance, with topics ranging from immigration to mental health, explorations of gender, climate change, artificial intelligence, grief and love. New Creatives aims to give opportunities to emerging artists from backgrounds that are currently underrepresented in the arts and broadcasting, offering a unique platform for young, emerging artists to tell the stories they want to tell, bringing them to BBC audiences across BBC TV, radio and online.

New Creatives is a key component of the BBC’s wider initiative BBC Introducing Arts, with includes schemes in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. New Creatives is co-funded by BBC Arts and Arts Council England.
