Applied Industry Week
G Live does not run a general work experience programme in the usual sense; we are not responsive to set work experience weeks during school terms. Instead, we run an applied industry week for young people between 14 - 19 years olds in July.
The next Applied Industry Week is running Mon 6 - Fri 10 July 2020! Applications will be open from early December with the deadline set at Thu 30 January 2020, so watch this space!
During this week, a team of selected young people will form a model company to approach a creative production set by the G Live Team, each taking on a company role and mentored by G Live staff. This will include Technical and Production Team, Marketing Department and Administration, overseen by the Creative Learning Manager, Fiona Moon and Community Arts Assitant, Natalie Watson.
During the week, the company will come up with a company name and identity, assign roles, make design decisions and create materials, devise some rehearsed scenes/ pieces of music from the selected show, which will be presented to G Live’s industry professionals, teachers and family members on day five. Potential roles include, but are not limited to:
- Production Designer
- Stage Manager
- Performers (including actors, musicians, dancers or any other artform)
- Technical Manager
We are happy to take applications from any young person who has a genuine interest in working in the arts, including visual arts, music and theatre. G Live is a fully accessible building.
How to apply
The deadline for applications is 7 February 2020.
If you are successful you will hear from Natalie Watson by late February.
PLEASE NOTE: We will only accept applications from the young person concerned NOT parents or teachers unless under exceptional circumstances. We will not accept any application for work experience at any other time during the year. If you are over 19 yrs old please contact Fiona separately with an expression of interest.
