Young Artist Development Programme

February 14, 2012

May 20011 to May 2012


‘A twelve month arts development opportunity for 18 to 30 year olds who want to progress in further arts participation, training, education and a career in the arts”


YAD Update February 2012


Opportunity at our Networking event March 10th

Blank Media Collective have been working with Full Circle Arts on our Young Artist Development Programme. 


Blank Media have hosted four development sessions for the group and will host two further sessions on Saturday 11th February and Saturday 10th March.


We shall be meeting again for a Networking event on Saturday 10th March, 11am to 3:30pm in Manchester and believe you may be interested in playing a supportive role in the development of young artists.


We are welcoming arts professionals to attend our event, to share their career journeys, experience, opportunities, organisations and networks with the group.


We would be particularly interested in hearing from experienced creative practitioners working in the following specialities who could deliver a twelve minute presentation as well as provide information, advice and guidance when networking with the group throughout the remainder of the day.




Music professional, with experience of performance, song writing and music facilitation

Crafts/jewellery designer/maker, in business

Photographer and Visual Artist producing work for exhibition.

Drama and Dance practitioner, ideally with experience of facilitating

Person or people who have gone through the process of setting up their own creative company, ideally running projects/events. Who could provide funding advice and information on building the foundations of a business.

Writer or a producing organisation familiar with receiving scripts, providing critique and supporting the production of new work in comedy, radio or theatre.


We shall select presenters based on experience, ideas for presentation and the needs of the group on the Young Artist Development Programme. Full Circle Arts can offer a small gratitude fee of £60 to those who are selected to present and available for the day.


If you are an arts organisation or artist and not available or selected to present on the day but would still like to attend the second part of the day to share information during networking, we would be very pleased to hear from you. Also if you have any further attendees who you think our Young Artists group might benefit from speaking to informally on the day then please let us know.


In the first instance please respond to and to express your interest. If you could get back in touch initially by next Friday, 17th February 2012.
