Objectives

Creative Sparkworks is a grass roots charity based in North Lambeth, that supports socioeconomically disadvantaged 18-30 year olds from underrepresented groups facing barriers to employment in the Film and TV industry.  We exist to engage, motivate and upskill, young people from underrepresented groups including BAME, neurodiverse, LGBTQ, NEET, prison leavers, homeless, asylum seekers and refugees struggling to find the right opportunity and representation by championing their voice to increase inclusion and access into the creative workplace.

Activities

We do this by providing hands-on free Film and TV skills Training and Employment courses underpinned with mentoring from inspirational industry practitioners, studio tours and industry professional led workshops including CV and Finance for Freelancers sessions.  We help place underrepresented young people into entry level positions paid at the London Living Wage within the Film & TV Industry as well as helping those not quite job ready to gain access to training schemes and apprenticeships.
