Inspiring Creativity

Guy Holness wants to inspire creativity in young people

A man from Dudley has created a film with Fixers encouraging young creatives to connect with each other to build a more positive world.

 

Guy Holness, who up-cycles unwanted wooden factory pallets into flower boxes, wants young people to get together and use their creative talents to contribute something positive to the world around them.

 

The 25-year-old says: ‘I want to connect to other creative minds around the world to create projects, artwork and impact.

 

‘Some people need to make the sacrifice and not just live for themselves. If we can create a collective of positive, passionate people, then life can be good.

 

‘Something I’ve learned through travelling and meeting people, is that positivity isn’t profitable, and this is why I decided to take something that was seen as a negative – waste – and turn it into something positive and useful.’

 

 

Guy believes that by thinking creatively, we can find solutions to many of our problems.

 

‘By thinking about things creatively, it’s the only way we can find innovation. And innovation is the only answer to some of the serious issues we face,’ he says. 

 

Guy plans to share his film on social media.  

 

'I hope my film enables young people to push themselves by thinking more creatively because it can give you alternative options in terms of what you do in life,' he says.
