Earlier in the year we announced our new project, Culture Matters, that sees us work with Liverpool Libraries and young people with disabilities to light up the libraries across the city with creative activities, events and exhibits.
We are now recruiting young disabled people aged between 13 and 18 to get involved in these activities as Digital and Cultural Producers. The young people involved will receive mentoring and training from a range of arts and media professionals in different creative skills areas, such as digital media production, organising events, recruiting and working with artists, facilitating creative activities and much more. Current roles include:
Digital & Cultural Producer: Curation

All of the roles will need a 2 – 3 day time commitment between April and Sept 2017 and as part of the project, you will have the opportunity to have your work and learning accredited by Arts Awards, and will receive references from the industry professionals you work with.
You don’t need any experience to get involved, but we’d love them to have bucket loads of enthusiasm for creative and cultural activities. Everything else can be picked up on the training!
