The Southbank Centre and Apple today announced national partners, (including STEAMhouse) and further details of REFRAME, its pioneering new talent development programme to support emerging Black and Black Mixed heritage creatives in London, Manchester and Birmingham.
This partnership between the Southbank Centre and Apple helps address and remove the systemic barriers to career development Black creatives face in the arts and creative industries.
The ambitious programme launches with a one-year pilot project between March and August 2023 in partnership with arts venues Factory International, Manchester, Midlands Arts Centre (MAC), Birmingham and Birmingham City University’s STEAMhouse.
Reaching out to 80 emerging Black creatives from low-income backgrounds as well as hundreds of secondary school children in 21 schools in London, Greater Manchester and Birmingham to help young people reach new heights in their creative careers.
The programme has two strands:
This free course runs for 14 days and consists of hands-on creative sessions as well as sessions led by Apple creative experts. Designed in consultation with leading employers, it will focus on equipping young creatives to use digital tools needed for the future and preparing them for the practicalities of a career in the arts.
