CPD: Young Arts Entrepreneurs Scheme at Curve Theatre
November 25, 2013
I am super excited and very grateful to announce that I have been awarded a place on the Young Arts Entrepreneurs (YAE) at Curve, Leicester. Through this scheme I will be supported, funded and trained to initiate and deliver an creative business project. I will reveal more about my project in the coming months but I can happily say that so far, I am learning a lot and I am being superbly supported by an incredible YAE team and fellow YAE’ers, I am really thankful to have been given this opportunity. I will be blogging about my experience on YAE and my individual project so keep an eye out. The video above is a a really broad overview of my interests for the project that I'd like to facilitate... It's already changed quite a bit, but it is rooted from the same goal to connect and showcase emerging dance and interdisciplinary artists across the Midlands region. Here are some more details about YAE:
Funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and D’Oyly Carte Trust, The Young Arts Entrepreneurs (YAE) is now in its third and final year. This innovative programme provides opportunities to young and emerging artists from across Leicester and Leicestershire to help design and lead their own community arts projects and launch their own businesses. As well as support, training and mentoring, We offer up to £1,500 to run each successful project. (Curve 2013). There are three phases of YAE:
Phase 1: Training and Project Set Up. This includes the boot camp, business sessions, branding, accounting, social media and online presence, licensing and templates.
Phase 2: Creative Content and Direction. This phase will include the tailored workshops for leadership and direction. You will be trying and testing your work along with research and also creating elements of your project. This will also be when the drop in sessions start.
Phase 3: Delivery, Performances and Evaluation. This will be final phase of showcasing work, delivering finished workshops, sharing events within communities and showcase day for industry and funders in August at Curve.
