Knowledge and opportunities
for emerging creative talent

Established by YCN, and delivered in partnership with creative business and education, New Now is a programme to stimulate, elevate and empower emerging creative talent — anywhere.

The programme is setting out to further efforts towards a more diverse, informed and impactful creative industries; and to build more bridges between education and industry. Working with partners from our global creative community we are providing knowledge and opportunities for emerging creatives across design, advertising, digital, film, animation, illustration and all else in-between. From live briefs and internships, to digital content and in-person events — we want to connect rising talent anywhere with people and organisations everywhere who can apply, develop and realise their creative ambitions.
