The Creative Society is an arts employment charity that helps young people into jobs in the creative and cultural industries.
We have an exciting announcement to make! New Deal of the Mind has officially become The Creative Society.
Since founder and CEO Martin Bright wrote the article that kick-started our work, the concept of a New Deal of the Mind has provided a mutually rewarding service in which creative organisations and businesses have directly benefitted from the creation of over 1000 sustainable jobs for young people.
As our work has evolved however, we’ve had to evolve with it, and now need a new way to better reflect the positive outcomes that we as New Deal of the Mind have helped to shape.
We are therefore evolving our brand to become known as The Creative Society, with a mission to build and support the creative economy.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our partners old and new for joining us in our work and helping us build The Creative Society. Everything we’ve achieved has been in tandem with you.
We are still inspired by the pioneering arts work programmes of FDR’s 1930s New Deal, and we look forward to continuing our core mission to help young people into jobs in the creative and cultural industries as The Creative Society.
We’d love to know what you think of our evolution. Our social media links will be changing to @CreativeSoc and facebook.com/creativesoc. Come and say hello to us there.
