A FREE theatre and visual arts project for 18–25 year olds from across the UK

We want to bring together a diverse group of young people with different interests to create and perform a show in one week at the National Gallery in London. Could it be you? No experience of the arts is necessary!

This cross-arts project unites theatre and visual arts to explore themes of identity and survival across the UK. We want to bring together a diverse group of young people with different interests to bravely explore what’s important to them in response to Gallery exhibitions.

What we are offering

We are looking for young creatives, aged 18-25 who are enthusiastic and energetic. You will have an interest in the visual or performing arts, but no experience is necessary.

You will come to London from Sunday 6 – Sunday 13 January 2019 and collaborate with professionals and experts from Frantic Assembly and the National Gallery, meet new people and build confidence in your creative and performance skills. As a participant all your travel and accommodation will be paid for and food and drink will be provided.

How to apply

Step 1: Complete the application form below. 
Step 2: Create a 2-minute long video in response to the question ‘What makes me up?’
Thinking about your identity, use the 2 minute film to introduce yourself and what’s important to you. There’s no right or wrong, the video doesn’t have to be high quality; it could be a simple direct address. You can use just your voice or even incorporate drawing and animation.

Most of all we’re really interested to hear about you. Feel free to be as creative and imaginative as you like!

Send your video via WeTransfer to youngproducers@ng-london.org.uk. Please title the file with your full name and don’t forget to also complete the application form.
