Call for budding Liverpool performers to apply for free training scheme

Liverpool’s budding performers and makers can apply for a free full-time training course to help kick start a career in the arts.

Hope Street Ltd is calling for applicants to come forward for the June 2018 run of its renowned programme to develop artists, as the organisation celebrates its 30th anniversary.

Performers, a musical director/composer or sound designer, a number of designers/makers, stage managers, filmmakers and/or digital animators and a movement director are needed for the 10-week intensive vocational ADAPT (Artists Development and Performance Training) programme.

ADAPT, which will give participants the opportunity to create work alongside professional artists, learn business skills for the creative industries, and network with other organisations in the city, will culminate in a large-scale, split-site, multi-disciplinary performance.

Set to be directed by EggPeople, the ‘Climate Change is Rubbish’ production will contribute to a national programme of events celebrating the environment and inspiring actions on climate change.

Hopeful artists can apply via forms available on Hope Street Ltd’s website and must be over the age of 18.

The deadline to apply for the project is noon on 24 April, with interviews and auditions being held in the week commencing 30 April.
