Creative Update: Do It, Change It, Live It – In More Ways Than One

What we do at The Creative Condition often involves sharing our passion and motivation for media production with others.  Our PR and Marketing maestro, Dom, is giving a hand to two projects which reach out to a young audience.

Firstly, there’s a newly-sprung collaboration with our fellow Phoenix Centre tenants, Inspired Youth; where Dom has been offering journalism tips to 16 and 17 year olds in the idyllic setting of the Carlton Lodge outdoor activity centre in Thirsk.

This is part of a campaign called “Do It, Change It, Live It”, co-ordinated by the National Citizen Service and run at a regional level by IY, alongside child development charity North Yorkshire Youth and third-sector funding agency Your Consortium.

“I’ve been looking for an excuse to work with Inspired Youth all year,” admits Dom. “I am so pleased that I finally got my chance, and the Do It, Change It, Live It Campaign is really cool – there are so many great kids involved!”

Another current duty in Dom’s diary takes him across North Yorkshire to the abbey town of Selby.  It’s a project which builds on his long-standing work with NYBEP, a Riding-wide provider of work-based learning sessions.

The media workshop he led at Selby College wasn’t a solo effort; our Artistic Director, Jonathan – who’s also recently become a STEM Ambassador – came along for the ride.  Together, our boys informed students about how they honed their crafts in magazine journalism and graphic design.

Dom says: “I am really happy to have the opportunity to work with NYBEP on a consistent basis, and to be able to bring Jay’s skills in to the equation and support young people around Yorkshire. It’s a real pleasure so far!”
