Our sessions are facilitated by: 

Izzy Bianchini

Programme Development Manager - Croydon Music and Arts

I co-founded this Collective following a big youth arts consultation we ran in 2015, after which a group of young people self-selected themselves to continue the advocacy work we had started. I lead on planning and delivery and have loved supporting the group to evolve. They have made some serious impact and have brought about some important creative change for the youth arts in Croydon!

Anthony Quinnell

Youth Engagement Outreach Worker - Education and Youth Engagement Team

I started working with CYAC in 2016, supporting CMA with facilitating planning sessions. I act as a point of contact for the young people involved in CYAC and help empower them to reach their aims. Roll on the next Youth Takeover!

Charlotte Wilson

Development Officer - Croydon Music and Arts

I started working with CYAC in 2016, supporting with the planning and delivery of sessions, including their Takeover events. Since then I’ve really enjoyed seeing the group grow in both numbers and their personal development. Their confidence in dealing with any situation thrown at them has developed hugely. It’s also been really rewarding to see their friendships flourish!
