Creative Skills Summer Workshop – Participant Nominations
Young people aged 16-18, apply now for Creative Skills Summer Workshop! This is a new project to help connect you and other young people across London to opportunities and pathways into careers in the creative industries, produced by City of London and Foundation Future London.
The programme will run from 23-27 August 2021, 10am to 4pm.
Over the week, you’ll take part in interactive sessions with experts and creatives to get a better understanding of the creative industries and ultimately develop resources to help other young Londoner’s explore a creative sector path. Sessions will take place in person (Covid-19 restrictions permitting) and all successfully completing the week will receive a certificate.
This is an exciting opportunity for young people interested in art, music, dance, drama or other arts or design-based elective at GCSE or A-Level. We are especially keen to engage with students who come from backgrounds that are underrepresented in the creative industries, as well as young people who found choosing arts subjects a slightly challenging decision to make due to alternative views from parents and/or schools, expectations, other subject choices, concerns about access to higher education or other factors. The workshop may also be valuable for students considering creative careers or higher study in the arts.
The programme is free, will be supervised by fully qualified, and DBS checked staff, and will be held in an easily accessible location at The Trampery, a 2-minute walking distance from Old Street Station. Participants will receive a £50 contribution to help cover any travel expenses, meals and materials. Additionally, Foundation for Future London will provide a bursary stipend to further support participants.
If you would like to nominate a young person (or yourself), please contact Ashton Mullins on email@example.com.
Deadline: 23 July 2021
