Young Producers

Calling all young people with big ideas!

Tees Valley Museums are looking for young people aged 16-25 to join Preston Park Museum and Grounds and Hartlepool Museum and Art Gallery as part of their Young Producer groups. We want you, if you have amazing ideas and can help to create exciting events and opportunities for young people across the Tees Valley.

We think this will be an amazing experience if you’re looking to work in the arts, heritage or cultural sector in the future.

As part of this opportunity, you will receive:

* Opportunities to meet other young people with similar interests from across the Tees Valley;

* Opportunities to plan and organise your own events for young people, in venues across the Tees Valley;

* Chances to influence the way we work with young people, feeding your ideas in to our venues and staff;

* Open application to an access fund, to allow you to access the programme if funding is a barrier;

* Free travel passes to get you to meetings and help with arranging travel if needed;

* Opportunities to see behind-the-scenes at our venues and work with staff;

* Opportunities to attend relevant training opportunities;

* Support from a dedicated staff member who can also assist with CV and job application queries.

In return, we would ask for you to:

* Commit to attending a Young Producers meeting in person, every month (meetings should be no longer than 2 hours and are held at the museum site you apply to).

* Commit to attending a career focused opportunity once a month (this could be an off-site visit to another cultural venue, a shadowing opportunity at a museum, a training day, etc).

* Be interested in having your voice heard and sharing ideas.

* Be able to work as part of a team with the other members of the group.
