Opportunity for Emerging Artists: Nurturing Talent, Create


Nurturing Talent, Create’s programme for emerging artists, is running between April 2020 and March 2021, offering an opportunity to six graduate artists (all studies must have been completed) who are interested in gaining hands-on workshop experience to apply their professional practice in a community setting. 

Over 12 months (approximately 27 days) you will:

  • Work as a supporting artist alongside Create’s professional artists to plan and deliver three or more creative arts projects (circa 18 days). You’ll work with different community groups (eg: vulnerable older people; young carers; children with disabilities; homeless adults).
  • Attend six professional development training days led by Create artists, which focus on leadership skills, workshop planning and delivery.
  • Work in pairs to design and deliver your own workshop in one of Create’s community settings.
