Tileyard Impact: connecting young people to creative careers
A project helping young people to improve their education and build their networks in the creative sector
Tileyard Impact works to bridge the gap between creative education and creative careers. It is a work experience programme from the Tileyard studios, which works with young people from local estates, schools and colleges and introduces them to real work creative industry projects; increasing their experience and network while introducing them to the creative environment.
Wizdom is the Managing Director of Tileyard Impact and was an artist for 17 years before moving onto youth work and running the Arts for London Charity XLP. After being involved in the setting up of ELAM School and the Big Music Project, Wizdom returned to the music industry to try and open the doors from the inside out, utilising the power of music and creativity to improve employability, self-worth and empowerment.
In June 2019 Tileyard Impact supported the Yxung Creatxrs team of young people from CYP (Copenhagen Youth Project) who ran the youth stage at Cally Fest, a local street festival on the Caledonian Road, London.
