  • Call-out for Sunderland Culture Young Ambassador Team

    Sunderland Culture is excited to launch their NEW Sunderland Culture Young Ambassador Team; a project that will see us work with young people to improve the young people’s offer in Sunderland.

    We are looking for a team of Sunderland young people aged 13-25; we want young people who want their voices to be heard, to be change makers, the creative instigators, the excited doers and young people champions.

    For our first big project, we are partnering with Helix Arts to curate and organise an exciting takeover of Arts Centre Washington on 1st November 2019.

    The young people recruit into this project will be the ones leading and creating this takeover event for young people, by young people in Sunderland, for young people in Sunderland.

    To kick start the process, young people will take part in the ‘Make It Happen’ learning scheme, which is all about doing just that, making things in Sunderland actually happen for young people! Through this they will develop the skills they will need to organise and plan their own event including things like project management, marketing, budget management, social media manage etc – whilst learning from professionals and experts from creative industries…

    This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to gain new skills, get creative and have their say in Sunderland!

    So if you’re aged 13-25 from living in Sunderland and want to take part, have any questions, would like the call-out in an alternative format, or know someone who fits the bill – we’d love for you to get in touch by emailing Rachel at [email protected]
