Current Programmes > Creative Cafés


Creative Cafés are high-energy, dynamic networking events where young people can meet and be inspired by employers and industry professionals across all sectors.

Creative Cafés can be booked by an educational institution, local authority, or employability programme.

Creative Cafe at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) from Culture Shift on Vimeo.

Like any good café, there is a menu from which young people can choose their activities with guidance and support from an expert facilitator. Activities can include:

  • ‘Speed-dating’
  • Q&A or ‘hot-seating’
  • Practical, creative challenges related to industry practice

Find out what volunteers get out of taking part in a Creative Café.


A programme of Creative Cafés in Hastings is currently being supported by The Careers and Enterprise Company.
