Vital to the Creative Economy
We will work entrepreneurially to provide employment opportunities for young people and generate income so we can inspire progression and innovate artistically.
Contact has developed a strong core brand with values like experimentation, risk taking, creativity, and youth empowerment at its heart. We also create branded festivals like Contacting the World which has a massive international audience. We are constantly creating new branded festivals and events like Queer Contact, Playspace, Verbally Challenged and RAW (Rhythm & Words) that can be commercialised to create revenue to support our core values and mission.
We develop talent and support the emergence of diverse groups of artists and facilitators. It is essential that we not only support the empowerment of these artists but that we benefit from our investment by creating mutually beneficial business opportunities for young people and the company through our Creative Consultants, facilitators, and schools programme.
