Founded in February 2013, Beatfreeks is a creative youth engagement agency based in the heart of Birmingham.
We are an award winning social enterprise firmly rooted in Birmingham working nationally with experience in international consultancy.
We pioneer new ways of engaging, empowering and equipping young people and spaces through a blend of arts, digital media, social action, leadership and enterprise. We like to think of it as art activism or even Artivism.
We build incredible projects, events and campaigns that help young people put their skills into practice whilst helping brands and organisations develop their relationships with young audiences.
We’ve achieved some pretty awesome stuff, from working with BBC 1Xtra on 'Scratchbeat' to bring national and local talent together to share a stage (which also saw local artists get national airplay), through to working with a group of young people passionate about mental health over 12 weeks to set up their own official social enterprise ‘Ripple CIC’.
Beatfreeks is a philosophy, a mindset and a reflection of a new generation of creative, freethinking social reformers.
