We are now recruiting for this year’s Young Ambassadors Scheme.

Wiltshire Creative Young Ambassadors is open to any young person aged 14-21 and meets monthly to discuss how Wiltshire Creative can be more responsive, made more relevant and exciting for the Young People of our local community.

The Young Ambassadors advocate for the organisation and are responsible for communicating the exciting work done here at Wiltshire Creative for the Young People in the local area. They also have the opportunity to support the organisation with staff recruitment and on major projects such as exhibitions and festivals.  In the past, our Young Ambassadors have:

• Worked on staff recruitment throughout the year as appropriate. In 2018, young ambassadors helped to recruit the position of Creative Learning Officer and members of the board of trustees.

• Worked on the Festival Exhibition Curators Panel. Working with guest curators and our team, to curate artwork for Salisbury International Festival.

• Event blogging and promotion

• Worked with Noble Prize winner Rebecca Johnson in the debate element of the International Arts Festival, ‘The Festival of Ideas’

In 2019/2020, our Young Ambassadors will be leading on an exciting Takeover Festival which will involve coordinating, planning and running their own festival. They will programme shows, book live music and film and create a truly unique two-week festival celebrating the arts and young people in Wiltshire.

The Takeover Festival will be happening at Salisbury Arts Centre and Playhouse 6th April -17th April 2020.

Membership to our Young Ambassadors group is absolutely free and meetings will take place twice a month. A full schedule of meetings will be given out in the first meeting which will be on the 18th October 5pm at Salisbury Playhouse
