We are delighted that The Comedy Trust, with support from Sandfield Park School and National Museums Liverpool, will set up flexible, barrier-free internships in the cultural sector designed for young people with disabilities.
The Comedy Trust, Sandfield Park School and Harry Georgiou, a young person with experience of a supported internship, will work together to identify cultural organisations that are able to support young people with disabilities to develop transferable skills.
Cultural employers are invited to attend a briefing event at the Museum of Liverpool on Thursday 5th March, from 2.45-5pm. Anyone from the arts and cultural sector is welcome to come along and find out more – just let Julia Bryan know if you are planning to attend: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please follow this link for directions/how to find the venue:
Following the briefing, the project management team will support cultural organisations to develop opportunities that are valuable and meaningful for young people with additional needs as part of their education. They will then communicate these opportunities to schools and education settings working with young people aged 16+ and invite students to express interest. Young people will be matched to supported internships in organisations that are able to tailor activity to individual interests and career/skills development needs.
