Hollr Creative Producers

Rosehill in partnership with Soundwave is delighted to be supporting a brand-new project for young people in Copeland.

What is the project?

This is an exciting new project led by Hollr, where young people aged 16-19 based in Copeland will get the chance to learn new skills and develop a youth-focused event for other young people in the area.

Throughout the project, young people will work and learn from industry professionals and specialists from the creative sector and youth initiatives.

Please see the Hollr project page here for more information.

What will I gain?

Hollr is looking for young people aged 16-19 who are based in Copeland to be part of a new project where you can:
● develop new skills and confidence in creative and cultural producing and event management
● meet new people and be part of the Hollr Creative producer team
● learn about other creative or / youth-led opportunities
● hear from industry experts and other youth-based projects
● produce your very own event for young people from ideas to delivery as part of a team.

What will the project consist of?

The project will provide you with amazing opportunities!

You will meet other young people from across the country, as well as industry specialists, creative freelancers, local and regional companies, and professionals. These people will give you a first-hand experience of taking the lead in developing youth-led, cultural projects, events, and initiatives. You will also have the chance to learn about other youth-led programmes.

The programme will consist of practical and fun opportunities, which will also encourage you to have more ownership and identity in your local areas.

What will my role be?

Your role is to take the lead in developing a youth-led event/festival. You will programme, develop, and manage the event with the guidance of Rosehill, Soundwave and Hollr.

As a Hollr creative producer, you will work collectively to put on the event or a series of events. As part of a team, you will decide on the theme, focus and location, structure, and management of the final event. This is your stamp on Cumbria.

What are the dates of the programme?

The programme will take place from Dec 2022 – March 2023.

If you would like to be part of the project, then you will be required to be available for the dates below.

If your application is successful, you will be invited to an open Workshop - Tuesday 29 November, 6pm - 7:30 pm at Soundwave HQ, Westlakes science park, CA24 3JZ.

Project dates

Project introduction day

Saturday 3 December 11am – 4.30pm at Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven, CA28 6SE.

Creative producer training and development days

Saturday 14 January 11am - 3pm at Soundwave HQ, Westlakes Science Park, CA24 3JZ.

Monday 20 – Thursday 23 February at times and location TBC.

Saturday 11 March at Soundwave HQ, Westlakes Science Park, CA24 3JZ.

Final event will happen in spring/early summer and will be decided by you once we start the project.

Who can apply?

We are encouraging all young people aged 16-19 based in Copeland to apply despite their background and ability.

This is your chance to become a local trendsetter, to be the reason behind change in your community.

Whilst we hope there will be a creative element to the project, you do not have to be from a creative background to apply.

This is not about having the best grades or having loads of work experience. You do not need to have your entire career mapped out; we want to give you an opportunity that provides insight into where you may want to go with your passions.

We want to work with young people who will get stuck into something new and who are enthusiastic about resolving issues faced by Gen Z/the younger generation.

What support will be available for me to take part in the project?

If you have any access and support needs or other support challenges that might usually persuade you from applying for projects like this, then please contact us. We will do what we can to accommodate and make you feel welcome despite any challenges you will face.

We also recognise that travel might be an issue for some, so we will provide support with transport costs for you to get to the sessions and make sure that there is free food at all sessions.

How do I apply?

Applications have now closed. Thank you to all who have expressed an interest.

This project is kindly supported by Cumbria County Council.

Superb venue, clean, and the theatre is beautiful. Saw a film for the first time last night, sound and picture were awesome. Highly recommended.
