Bristol 247 who are part of the programme said:“We want to be more inclusive but the majority of us are white, middle-class, university-educated. We’ve been working hard with amazing, diverse, talent through partners across the city but it isn’t yet translating into our recruitment.”

Our offer includes panel sessions, workshops and discussions with a range of exceptional speakers and facilitators, including some of the programme’s talented young creatives.

Up to 24 companies will have the additional opportunity to host a funded placement with one of our cohort of Talent, providing a match can be made. Placements offer companies access to incredible skills and voices in their workforce, whilst providing young people with the experience they need to sustain a creative career. We’ll look for the best matches, where interests align between company business goals and values, and the career ambitions of our talented young cohort.

However, for those wanting to invest at a slower pace, we have a full programme of workshops from July – December 2020.
