Young people standing on stage at Warwick Arts Centre

Young Producers

A free training opportunity for Coventry-based 16-22 year olds to find out more about making arts events happen delivered by Warwick Arts Centre and China Plate.

What do Young Producers do? 

We are delighted that our second cohort of Young Producers launched earlier this year!

A great opportunity to develop employability and interpersonal skills, whilst being creative, working with new people and taking the lead in producing a festival of events alongside professionals within the current UK arts scene. 

Through a mixture of intensives and evening sessions our Young Producers gain insight into what it takes to put on arts events – project planningbudgetingmarketingproject delivery and evaluation

They also hear from professionals across arts organisations and see work. They then create and put on their own events!


Coming up Soon... 

Young Producers are producing VIVACITY, a festival of events at Warwick Arts Centre from 1st – 3rd April 2022. 

You can stay up to date and share about the festival on social media T: @vivacityfest  I: @vivacityfest

“I absolutely loved it! Gaining practical experience by actually putting on an event has been life-changing. I didn’t know what a producer actually did before I started the programme and now I want to be one.” – Young Producer Alumni
