The team behind Great Yarmouth’s colourful Out There festival has launched a new scheme to give volunteers a unique insight into the arts.
Seachange Arts is putting together a team to support its events and projects while gaining access to a number of exclusive artistic and creative opportunities.
The Troupers scheme will offer participants the chance to take on numerous roles to gain valuable experience potentially helping kick start their career in the arts. Alongside practical experience they will also get unique opportunities to take part in shows, work with artists, input on programming and marketing, and visit other festivals.
Sacha Goslin, marketing assistant at Seachange, said: “It’s a great opportunity for those looking to pursue a career in the arts.
“Like any industry there is a lot of competition for careers. By gaining as much experience as you can, it will give you an edge going forward. Alternatively if you’re just passionate and want to get involved in the arts, we’d love to hear from you.”
