Skilling the diverse workforce
This is a partnership with Unit 9 in Wolverton funded through ESF funding. We are giving soft employment skills to 16 young long term unemployed people who have a history of mental health problems or other challenges using the arts and music on a course which is supportive and fun where they use music industry techniques to learn how to give themselves the confidence and ability to volunteer or look for work. The course includes placements in the arts and heritage sector.
Groovy Gecko Refresh
Our regular nightclub for learning disabled adults is getting a makeover. We are training our volunteers and workers and offering mentoring and in-depth skills to those participants who would like to learn how to DJ, Blog, do our communications and more. We are also putting on additional club nights with more of a performance focus at Unit 9 in Wolverton. Our Slug and Lettuce Nights will continue.
Check out the What’s On page for dates and details or contact us if you fancy volunteering.
The following Projects are in Development and awaiting the result of funding bids.
This project strand is partly about using the arts to give people who may face challenges practical employment skills and opportunities.
We are also interested in working in partnership with the cultural sector to support them with the training and tools they need to build a diverse workforce, and to mentor and support talented emerging artists, producers and others who come from diverse backgrounds and situations to gain places within the cultural industries. Everyone wants to achieve this and many of our creative organisations already do great things so we also hope to share good practice and offer a network to do so.
