We're currently recruiting for Creativity Works: Transforming Spaces. It's a new programme for 15 talented young Londoners kick-starting a career in set design and build for festivals, theatre and events.

Over an initial 4-week intensive course participants will take part in industry-focused training, covering creative concept to computer aided design, research to user testing, branding to fabrication. Paired with artist mentors, trainees will also complete a work placement preparing and building structures for an interactive event at The Barbican’s Walthamstow Garden Party in July.
