Led by cultural producer Tobi Kyeremateng, you will discover how versatile a producing role is by learning about budgeting, marketing, project management and developing ideas.  Working closely with producers from across the creative industries including Koko Brown, Salome Wagaine, Taro Shimada, Natalie Fiawoo, Jack Prideaux and Alison Holder, discover what it takes to produce an event and find out how the professionals make it happen.

This year we have many fewer places available on the Young People’s Programme, and so we are furthering our commitment to diversity and access by concentrating recruitment in three areas that we recognise have been most affected by the events of this year: young Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people, young people from working class backgrounds and young people with disabilities.
