An Overview – what is YCE?

  • YCE identifies and connects a global network of innovative emerging entrepreneurs in the creative and cultural sector.
  • It champions those who find new ways to take creative work to audiences and communities – e.g. new models of production, distribution, value – and highlights the wider social, economic and cultural benefits in doing so.
  • It is about demonstrating leadership to develop the creative sector and cultural market.
  • YCE presents opportunities for networking, skills sharing and development, peer learning, resources, and inspiration.
  • Above all, YCE is a mindset. It’s about taking risks, seeing opportunities and doing something one is passionate about.

Objectives

  • Creative entrepreneurs are primary agents in the dissemination of new creative ideas and cultural experiences. As such they are multipliers in the context of cultural relations.
  • To extend both the understanding of what local audiences are interested in and looking for and how to engage those audiences with new ideas. The YCE network provides vital intelligence that allows shaping the local offer more effectively.
  • To develop useful relationships with entrepreneurial individuals who present new ideas for partnership, collaboration and potentially new funding streams to take forward relationships/projects with greater local relevance and sustainability embedded in them.
  • Through wider engagement and nurturing, investment in this programme and the opportunities that arise from it, this network of YCEs has become a central vehicle for the cultural relations agenda, not just in the arts and creative economy, but a wider engagement that links many strands of British Council activity purposefully together.
