Young people are often natural entrepreneurs: creative, innovative and visionary with immediately transferrable skills that lend themselves to self-employment.
The Student Makers Market brings young entrepreneurs together to create vibrant mini-markets within established street markets, festivals and galleries.
The project sources and supplies free stalls and equipment for unemployed young people, graduates and school students from communities struggling with high levels of youth unemployment and other social and economic problems. The pilot market is in Canterbury, a popular visitor destination with 30,000 students.
