Arts & Culture
The Culture and Arts Programme is led by Ignite Imaginations. With 17 creative partners, 7 schools and 59 ambassadors this programme aims to give young people a real insight into the career opportunities in the sector, build their creative and interpersonal skills and connect them to the world of work. The programme intends to inspire and galvanise the next generation of artists, producers, coordinators and CEO’s.
This year, Ambassadors are set to work through a Bronze Arts Award as part of the programme (Level 1 award on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF)) and visit local creative organisations across the county. From Site Gallery to Higher Rhythm, the creative sector is well represented and explored in this programme with overall facilitator Ignite Imaginations.
Ambassadors have enjoyed a rich and diverse range of experience including:
- Curating part of a museum for the day
- Visiting one of Sheffield’s iconic theatres for a behind-the-scenes insight into the workings of the theatre world and taking on the promotional challenge of how to engage more young people with theatre
- Team building with Third Angel
- Using art, craft and entertainment to engage with the elderly in a local residential home.
