Future Fires will receive high level training and mentoring to develop their creative practice, leadership and project management skills
Future Fires is a programme that supports young artists to develop a socially-engaged art project in their own community. We run two-day short courses and a twelve-month programme.
Our two-day Short-Course is delivered three times a year and gives an introduction to developing a community project. We recruit annually for our twelve-month programme for artists who want to speak out on a certain issue, or challenge social barriers which exist.
During the twelve-month programme, Future Fires will receive high level training and mentoring to develop their creative practice, leadership and project management skills. Once the training is completed, Future Fires will receive up to £1000 of funding to make it happen!
