A new partnership project, with a paid opportunity for young people living in Leicester/shire. The chance to collaborate with an artist and/or musician to share your work at Attenbrough Arts centre.
Where we are… is a new UK-wide national programme for young people aged 18–24 that co-designs and co-delivers meaningful local projects in arts and culture.
Supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation(Opens in new window) and covering costs for all involved, the programme aims to engage young people who are under-served in the museum sector.
We are one of three key partners working with the British Museum:
- Museums and Galleries Edinburgh and Edinburgh Young Carers
- Harewood House Trust and Geraldine Connor Foundation
- Attenborough Arts Centre and Pedestrian
How the programme works
Running from 2021–2025, Where we are… will be delivered through a collaborative partnership between the British Museum, a cultural organisation, a third sector organisation (charity, community group, social enterprise etc.) and young people.
The programme will annually invite cultural and third sector organisations from all over the UK to pair together and apply to become a Key Partner.
Each year, these Key Partners will shape the development and delivery of local arts and cultural projects and will be critical to the recruitment of young people into the programme. These co-designed projects will be unique to their locality, responding to a community need identified by the young people.
The programme aims to:
- Remove some of the barriers to engagement that young people face within the cultural sector.
- Create a sense of agency in young people that can be reflected into their communities.
