Applications open for Flourish In Diversity Summer Programme
As an alternative route into industry, our Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund grantee Flourish In Diversity CIC is launching a part-time 𝙨𝙖𝙡𝙖𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙙 fashion training programme that aims to 𝙪𝙥𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙨𝙘𝙝𝙤𝙤𝙡 𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙨 from minority ethnic and low socio-economic backgrounds. This programme will support underrepresented talent access and prosper within the fashion sector.
Taking place in August 2022, the programme collaborates with brand partners to take students through the fashion product cycle. Focusing exclusively on 𝙨𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 and 𝙚𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡 𝙥𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙚 – an industry skills gap – the programme looks to alternative practices as well as future technologies for cleaner and fairer solutions.
On completion of the programme, candidates will have the opportunity to apply for a three-month paid internship with brand partners.
Deadline for applications is 31 March 2022.
