We’re hiring 12 Trainee Producers aged between 16-24 for a six month traineeship in creativity, festival management and community place-making.
Each trainee will be paid 25 hours per week at minimum wage, and take part in a transformational programme that will kick-start their progression routes to the future.
It will be the biggest creative industries training programme ever to run in South of Scotland, bringing together 40 different practitioners who will mentor and cultivate the energy of our next generation of producers and artists.
You don’t need much experience to take part, other than a burning passion for creativity, and your place in the world. You don’t need to have bags of confidence or self-esteem, we are interested in your voice and your particular sense of creativeness. We are looking for young people who are interested in art, performing or fancy producing events in the future.
We are currently looking for expressions of interest from young people who would like to be included in the selection process. We are particularly keen to hear from young people who feel like they miss out on opportunities or are from under-represented groups.
