Who are Fledgling?

We provide a platform both online (primarily) and offline for those who struggle with mental health, addiction, gender dysphoria, sexuality or who feel like they don't quite 'fit', or feel estranged to this world : to express themselves through art as catharsis.

Combining Art & Catharsis and being CathARTic!

We provide an exciting ground-breaking arts collective and we encourage people to express themselves through art. We believe the arts are a great elixir and creativity is our currency. Our ethos is based on 'pay it forward' exchanging the arts for positive and encouraging feedback from our team of art-crazy volunteers and encouraging our members also to create a ripple effect.

The arts is an area where we are all free to express ourselves , be liberated in a way that we can't in our usual regimented , institutionalised world. It's a place where we don't have to colour within the lines , but we can go over the edges and...well...who knows where that might lead.... We see the arts as emancipation and an area where we can all be unified by transmitting and sharing expression , unified by love , the arts and expression.

We know that expressing ourselves through Creativity makes us all feel great and empowered! Fledgling Arts Collective Central believe that there are no 'amateurs' in the Arts & Creativity- WE ARE ALL ARTISTS ; and that the feel good ethos we encourage can really help with issues like building self esteem and helping to lift depression for instance.

We Believe the Arts & Creativity can change the world for the better.
We believe in can be unity in spite of diversity.
We believe that positivity & love are contagious.
We Believe in showing each other kindness
We Believe in encouraging each other
We Believe in Alternative Giving & Paying It Forward
We Believe in Breaking conventions
We Believe in embracing our unique selves and & Being Proud of who we are
We Believe in embracing Difference

If you empathise and feel akin with our beliefs please apply.
