Young Creatives is for young people living in Scotland aged 16-21. The suggested playing standard for Young Creatives Musicians is grade 4+ but you are still welcome to apply even if you haven’t sat any music exams.
Young Creatives Programmers do not need to play an instrument, or have any previous experience in classical music, but you must demonstrate your passion for the arts and the creatives industries in your application!
This programme is designed to be available to any young person in Scotland. Online activity can be undertaken from anywhere, and concert visits will be offered across the country. For the 5 in-person days in Glasgow we can offer travel and accommodation bursaries where necessary to make sure that no one faces any barriers to attending Young Creatives activity. No matter where you live in Scotland, we will support you to take part in RSNO Young Creatives.
Applications are now closed for RSNO Young Creatives 2021/22.
Applications for 2022/23 will open in the summer of 2022.
