Free training programme to harness local talent and build community capacity in North Ayrshire.
On behalf of Craft Town Scotland, West Kilbride, Magnox Socio Economic Scheme, Creative Scotland Place Partnership, and North Ayrshire Council, we are delighted to offer a unique and exciting opportunity to become a member of our North Ayrshire Creative Team over the next 9 months.
The Makers & Artists Mentoring Programme (M & AMP), will train ten Makers/Artists from across North Ayrshire. The programme is open to those who are currently unemployed or under-employed, and will focus on a structured programme of training and hands-on experience in participatory arts practice, reaching up to 300 people in communities across North Ayrshire via bespoke projects.
After the programme, Makers/Artists will be equipped with the tools and skills needed to have a viable and sustainable career within participatory and community settings and/or to support the development of a Self-Employed Portfolio Career. Key benefits are the additional one-to-one professional creative and business Mentoring support offered to each trainee, from skilled and respected Mentors, and access to industry contacts and networks.
The programme runs October 2020 – June 2021, and will be based in venues within the beautiful and inspirational Craft Town in West Kilbride, initially.
The team at Impact Arts work hard to secure over £1.5m of funding per year to provide life changing creative experiences for more than 5000 people.
You can help us achieve this target through making a single gift, or a regular donation. Thank you.
