We are proud to have 160 Future Leaders in our growing network since the programme began, and we look forward to meeting many more over the coming years.
Future Leaders is an innovative training programme in music, dance, and visual arts for emerging young artists aged 12-25.
Working with likeminded artists already in the industry, participants have the opportunity to further skills and subject knowledge, get stuck into practical tasks to challenge and inspire them, and gain a deeper understanding of the arts industry behind-the-scenes.
Successful applicants come from all over the UK, and undertake four residentials packed full of exciting Carnival arts workshops to explore further activities to develop in their home town. The course weekends are a lot of fun and everyone goes home having made new friends and creative contacts. Our residential activities and masterclasses take place in Oldham and Tameside in the North West of England.
