This exciting, free course is targeted at 15-20 year olds with a passion for the arts and events. The team is full of young creative minds with a keen interest in production, events coordinating and film programming. The group meet fortnightly to plan and create innovative projects that lead towards running South Hill Park’s well established children’s Arts Festival, ‘Wilde Week’.
No prior experience is required to be a part of our team and we are always open to new members.
The course also provides the team with a multitude of opportunities to programme and market films for South Hill Park’s intimate, 60 seater cinema. Alongside this they learn crucial skills in marketing and budgeting, the team often work with industry professionals to select their film choices for young local audiences.
The Wilde Young Producers will have the opportunity to work in collaboration with various specialists, giving expert advice, as well as the chance to run an established event within the venue. This course encourages teamwork, organisation, self motivation and a passion for the arts.
