Spitalfields Music Festival tickets went on sale on Monday with the highly original Schumann Street performances as a key event for the well-respected annual festival. What most people engaging with the events on social media won't know is that a group of 25 young people from East London had a hand in developing some of the ideas for promoting them.

Over summer, Co-relate had the privilege of working with London Legacy Development Corporation and creative partners across East London to run a marketing workshop for young people taking part in their Creative Opportunities Programme.

Year 10 students at Chobham Academy who have been working with Co-relate and Creative and Cultural Skills on a project to find out about the creative industries in their area will launch the results at Here East on 28 September.

The young people have visited BT Sport, worked with graphic design students from University of East London and interviewed a range of creative professionals to discover where the skills gaps are in East London's vibrant creative sector.

Not only did they find some key labour market intelligence, they built their creative skills in researching, interviewing, team work, graphic design, social media and presenting.

A photograph of a shepherdess in Northumberland taken by Co-relate photographer Zoe Childerley is featured as part of the UK's biggest ever photography exhibition, Portrait of Britain.

The image was one of 100 selected from 8000 entries and is displayed alongside celebrities and people from all walks of life across JCDecaux's network of digital screens as part of the British Journal of Photography's celebration of the best contemporary photography.

Zoe Childerley has been photographing communities around the world for more than 10 years. Her work plays with true and fictional narratives, lost histories and folktale to find the common humanity across diverse cultures and landscapes.

Crowdsourcing is perfect for market research, as no matter what type of information you’re looking to gather you’ll find that the people you engage with - both inside and outside your social network - are more than willing to help.

The challenge is making sure that you present your research in a clear way, so that those participating in your campaign can give you the information that you need.

Here are our tips for running a successful research crowdsourcing campaign:

The creative industries is the fastest growth sector in the UK so it's increasingly important for young people to understand what creative skills employers are looking for.

At Co-relate, we're excited to be running a Creative Digital Careers pilot project to map East London's creative sector for the Creative and Cultural Skills Council. Working with a small group at Chobham Academy, we are helping year 10 students research the creative careers landscape in their local area to create an infographic on the creative industries.
