Young producers needed for Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival 2017

Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival’s new Young Programming & Producing Team is calling for all 16 to 25 year olds in the borough interested in music, theatre, or the arts generally, to get in touch. A pioneering scheme will support four young people from diverse backgrounds to help programme events in the 2017 festival.

Working directly with a producer from Manchester’s Contact Theatre, the successful applicants will receive support and development to become part of the new generation of cultural leaders, seeing shows, attending events and participating in workshops. Whether the vision involves organising an amazing concert, putting on a groundbreaking play, or bringing a favourite artist to a wider audience, the festival team would love to hear some new ideas and help make them happen right here in the Rochdale borough.

Anyone interested in this unique opportunity should email Rafia Hussain. The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 5 September 2016.
