Long Division is delighted to announce a brand new project for 2019. #YoungTeam is an ambitious new educational programme, funded by Wakefield Community Foundation which will run as a pilot in 2019. We will take a team of Young People from Wakefield postcodes and guide them through our own devised curriculum focusing on DIY event creation and management, building skills and connections to help develop a career within the Arts and culminating in them presenting their own stage / event / activity at Long Division Festival itself, raising money for a local charity.
If that wasn’t enough, it will also be an actual qualification, an Arts Award at Silver Level, which is equivalent to a strong GCSE.
We’re hugely excited by this. We are delivering this all in-house, using the wider teams experience and passion to drive it. We believe strongly in creating opportunities for young people in our city and in turn hope to create the next generation of promoters, artists and entrepreneurs.
The project is partly funded by our Patreon campaign, so if you wish to support our work, please take a look.
