Read on to find out how the Young Creatives program influenced 2015 participant, Jake Tomlinson.

‘At the beginning of the year, I was involved in a truly amazing experience – PIAF’s Young Creatives. I was lucky enough to be one of seven chosen for this great experience.

Looking back on it now, I can see how much being a Young Creative has helped me extensively to get to where I am today. I was able to gain invaluable experiences in the field of technical production, such as sound checks, bump-ins and being a roadie. I truly learnt a lot and I now use that knowledge to better my own work.

I also met some fantastic people who spent their time helping me understand things I wasn't quite sure of. Everyone was super-friendly and helpful and I even made some new friends.'
