Our vision is to develop the next generation of creative minds to be
leaders in the digital and creative industries.

Nurturing Creative Talent



21K Digital Media’s mission is to assist marginalised young people to create campaigns, for social change and tell their stories about their lives. We nurture disadvantaged young people to develop skills in content creation, digital media, marketing, and connect them with employers in these industries. 21K Digital Media Hub was established for young people to develop their creative ideas so they come to life in media campaigns and thus create a movement to challenge stereotypes about their generation. All 100% of the organisation’s social media campaign content is produced by our team of 16- 26 year olds. Working closely with professional mentors, they receive on-the-job training in journalism, digital media, marketing, and entrepreneurship

Our journey so far:

21K Digital Media has been providing a safe and creative space since 2019 for disadvantaged young people to develop their creative skills and gain entry-level skills to pursue a career in the digital and media industry. We also assist young people to plan local events where they learn events planning, social media marketing, sound recording and scheduling live performers on stage
21K Digital Media has a talented team of professionals who come from a diverse range of creative, journalistic, video producing, marketing and PR, and events planning backgrounds. We offer young people access to 21K Digital media studio to shoot their video campaigns and music videos.

Helping ex-offenders to prepare for work

We empower young people to be successful through carefully curated creative and digital courses designed to increase employability and promote entrepreneurship.

We may not all be naturally creative, but many of us are not allowed the opportunity to explore our innate creativity. This is especially true for young people who may have not reached their full academic potential, or who have fallen short of the grade needed for traditional training.

The next generation of creative minds


We understand that developing creative ability alone is not enough. We teach young people how to appeal to recruiters, giving them with support and advice they need to become more employable  or start their own business. All of this is achieved through our employability skills programme.
