17th June 2014 until 31st July 2014 Location: Greater Manchester
Foot In The Door 2014 is a professional development programme for young people delivered by 24:7 Theatre Arts Network, the Performing Arts Network and Development Agency & Proper Job Theatre Company.
Foot In The Door 2014 is a new collaboration between PANDA, 24:7 Theatre Arts Network and Proper Job Theatre Company. As part of our final young media consultant scheme we have teamed up with 24:7 and Proper Job to deliver our project which helps young people develop skills in arts marketing and social media and to get hands-on experience working freelance for an artist or arts organisation. We have combined this project with 24:7’s Foot In The Door scheme which they have also been running successfully for a number of years, where they offer fantastic placement opportunities to young people, who help with the festival writers and organisers and in return gain a lot of valuable experience, skills, and new contacts and connections. Since the benefits of both schemes are so valuable we have combined our programmes and created a fantastic placement programme for young people which our current participants are currently under-taking.
