Young Entrepreneurs was a project developed and led by Derbyshire Environmental Studies Service from 2018 to 2020 and was one part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site "Great Place Scheme" (funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England).

The project aimed to:

  • Work with young people of different abilities aged 11 – 24.
  • Use the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, its heritage, creativity, entrepreneurial and factory production past to inspire the young creative entrepreneurs of the future.
  • Develop a range of employability, transferable and creative arts skills including teamwork, co-operation, financial, production, place-based creative responses, confidence etc.
  • Bring together educational settings (schools, colleges, learning communities), local artists and creative practitioners operating businesses in the Derbyshire area and Heritage Sites from across the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site to skill share and collaborate together in a ‘real world’ project.

More information about the project is available here.  We look forward to sharing this project with you.  Book your free place by completing this form.
