Looking to work in the arts? Join our Creative Careers Camp!

Have you always been interested in working in culture and the arts? Are you not sure how to get your foot in the door? It sounds like Global Grooves’ Creative Careers Camp could be for you!

Register for this free course by emailing Sophie (sophie@globalgrooves.org) or calling 0161 870 6895.

This twelve-week course, facilitated over Zoom, is completely free and is intended for people – of all ages and backgrounds – who have a passion for the arts and would like to know more about career opportunities, either as a practicing artist or behind the scenes.

As an arts organisation, Global Grooves has been making and producing work, and employing people with all sorts of skillsets, for many years. We would love to share our ideas and networks with you and you never know, it could just help you lift off into a new direction.

What will the sessions consist of?

Each week, we will be joined by an artist or a member of staff at a prominent arts organisation to discuss their work. They will tell us how they got started, the challenges they encountered along the way, the skills they have developed, and how to get started in the industry. They will also put forward a conundrum they’re currently facing and encourage us as participants to discuss and respond.

You will be able to pose your own questions in friendly Q&A sessions.

Each session will last between 1 – 1.5 hours.

When will the sessions take place?

The first session is 10am on Monday 13 July. The course will run every Monday at 10am for 12 weeks inclusive.

Sounds great! Can I join?
