Are you a young artist who wants to learn how to manage events and arts projects? Do you know any young people thinking of a career in the arts, or youth entrepreneurs looking to expand their networks in the arts industry?
EAST Arts Management Collective is a collaborative project for individuals aged 16-24 interested in project and event management, public relations, marketing and promotions, documentation, professional development, and entrepreneurship.
Under the guidance of the Scarborough Arts Manager – Youth Programs and industry professionals, and in collaboration with the EAST Music Collective, the Arts Management Collective will develop an organized project management strategy, build entrepreneurial networks, and identify specific project roles that correspond to industry careers.
In addition to employment training, the EAST Arts Management Collective will receive focused skill development towards branding, press releases, fundraising, and producing showcases that will culminate in a final group project. EAST Arts Management Collective 2014 is a free four-month program running from February 2014 to June 2014 that requires the full commitment of its participating members.
You can find the application form here. The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on January 30, 2014.
