Young Pioneers

Creative Estuary have partnered with Creative Basildon to bring you a new creative skills development programme: Young Pioneers.

Supported by industry experts, you’ll develop and deliver your own project that uses creativity to drive change in your local area.

You’ll be supported in your role by the Creative Basildon team and industry experts who will open doors to unique hands-on experiences that will boost your CV and give you a foot in the door for a career in the creative industries.

You’ll gain experience in teamwork, leadership and communication, alongside other personal and professional skills. The programme will improve confidence and increase your understanding of what a career in the creative industries looks like.

You will receive a £30 bursary (in addition to travel expenses) for each week you attend and participate as a Young Pioneer.

Anyone aged 16 – 25 and living in Basildon, Billericay, Wickford, Laindon or Pitsea is eligible to apply.
