In April 2012, Lincolnshire One Venues with funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation embarked on a collaborative project that aims to engage young people aged 12 to 25 from Lincolnshire within the 10 venues.
The programme seeks to provide young people with access to the widest possible range of opportunities to see, participate in and engage with the arts, listening to the interests and aspirations of young people in order to deepen their engagement and increase their influence on the venues as consumers, critics, programmers, aspiring artists and creative entrepreneurs.
This includes opportunities for young people to commission creative practitioners to produce new work with and for young people as well as skills development for young people interested in becoming involved in the governance and programming of the venues.
The one-day conference is the first phase of a broader project focusing on sharing the learning, journeys, stories and inspiration from the LOV Young People’s programme so far across three central themes – Developing Skills, Creating and Commissioning & Empowering Young People as Leaders.
A range of guest speakers from across the UK will also be invited to share their experiences and learning across these themes.
Chaired by Piotr Bienkowski, the conference has been organised specifically for organisations and practitioners working directly with young people from across the East Midlands region both within and external to the arts and culture sector.
Delegate Fee: £5
Details of the days programme and invited speakers will be announced shortly.
