Cannon Hill Collective

Posted on 28 August 2012

Calling all you young makers, creators, movers and shakers! How would you like to work with the Midlands’ liveliest arts centre?

MAC Birmingham is looking for a group of 20 young people, aged 16 to 24, to be part of mac’s Cannon Hill Collective. You can be from any creative discipline but you must be based in the West Midlands.

As part of the collective, you will come up with new ideas and develop projects from scratch, putting your stamp on mac’s fantastic arts programme.

During six months spent working alongside professionals from the field, you will be introduced to top notch art, have access to mac’s events and artists, and devise original work to share with young people across the region and beyond.

In the process, you will sharpen your project coordination, leadership and teamwork skills and gain confidence in decision-making, boosting your creative abilities.

The Collective will run from 1 October 2012 to April 2013, meeting one evening each week (with a break over Christmas) and at additional events as required.

The Cannon Hill Collective is part of the Next Generation strand at mac Birmingham, which celebrates work made by, with and for young people, to discover and nurture the Next Generation of creative talent. The Cannon Hill Collective is supported by the Monument Trust and IdeasTap.

Interested? Sign in to Ideas Tap and fill out the application form here.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an open interview at mac birmingham on Friday 28 September, 4 to 6pm.

The deadline is 5pm on Friday 21 September and is open to IdeasTap members aged 16-24 and based in the West Midlands.
