These opportunities are exclusively open to Yorkshire-based parents or carers in the performing arts who are freelancers, on short contracts or not currently in work, and who are further marginalised due to their ethnicity, cultural heritage or disability.
Each placement or opportunity will take into consideration the successful applicant’s career goals, access needs and circumstances. A participation fee of up to £744.40 is available, and the opportunities will take place between April and July 2022.
The Professional Development Placements will be hosted at PiPA Partner organisations across Yorkshire. There are 14 organisations participating, including:
- Balbir Singh Dance Company
- Migration Matters Festival
- Utopia Theatre
- Tutti-Frutti Productions
(see the Application Pack on PiPA’s website for the full list of participating organisations).
The placements cover a variety of disciplines, including marketing, project management, touring management, producing and directing.
There are specific professional development placements you can apply for, or you can apply to be part of the project more generally. If you choose the second option, you would be matched up with appropriate participating organisations or opportunities once enrolled in the project.
Please note that due to funding requirements, to participate in this project you must be a parent or carer AND belong to a group which is under-represented due to ethnicity, cultural heritage or disability.
Deadline to Apply: Tuesday 3rd May, 10:00 am.
