Creative kids have a lot of challenges ahead.
But they also have a great chance of having their ideas noticed by a global community of creative professionals and publishers.
A few months ago, the U.K.-based Creativity Academy hosted the Creativity Hub in an interactive exhibition and workshop, and now they’re hosting another event.
This year’s event, called Creativity Connect, will be held May 15-17 at the Creative Cloud in central London, and it will feature a curated list of over 200 creative products from top brands such as Bumble and Bumbleberry, Zazzle, and Nautilus, among others.
In addition to showcasing the products, there will also be a panel discussion with speakers from the Creativie and CreativityLab groups.
The event is a collaboration between Creativity Lab, the Creative Cloud and the UK’s creative community.
They’re planning to invite hundreds of creative adults, and their children, to share their ideas in the space, with the hope of bringing creative minds together.
“The world has moved on, so why shouldn’t children and young people be part of it?” said Creativity Director, Paul Fitch.
“We want to get creative people together and help them understand the world around them and how to take advantage of the opportunities that come with it.
In short, we want to bring creative people to the creative world, and let them have the tools and opportunities to make a difference.”
The event will also bring together parents and kids, so they can learn more about the tools they can use to help their children grow up in a world where they don’t have to feel like they need to do things their own way.
For example, the children can get hands-on experience using an iPad, and explore a creative app to create a video or song.
Other panels will include the UK-based Creative Lab, and a panel on digital literacy and digital culture.
These topics will also help to inform and educate future Creativity Labs, and the Creatives Hub itself.
The panel discussion is also aimed at creating a positive climate for the industry, as well as promoting the value of creative people.
For the event’s co-founder, John Gorman, it’s a chance to “get creative people talking about the world” with his co-presenter, Creative Lab founder, David Anderson.
The London event is part of the UK government’s Vision 2020 programme for the creative economy, which aims to bring more of the nation’s talented people into the world of work, so that they can create jobs for themselves and their families.
The U.S. government has also announced a similar initiative, calling on creative professionals to work together to create “a global community that supports, inspires, and engages creators.”
Creativity Hub founder Paul Fitts told TIME the U!
initiative is aimed at “getting the global creative community in place to meet the challenges of the digital age.”
