In difficult times, it can be really hard for any young person to imagine and build a career in the arts, but some young people face even tougher challenges. Tangled Feet believe that it is vital that the creative aspirations of all young people are nurtured, and that we work hard to make sure that the next generation of artists come from a diverse set of backgrounds. We are committed to supporting young artists to develop sustainable arts careers, and in identifying and helping to overcome the barriers or challenges that lie in young artist's paths.
We aim to have a clear pathway in place that enables interested young people to progress; from workshops, through volunteer placements and structured and paid internships and into paid employment with us where possible. See Case Studies below for some examples or Get in touch to discuss our mentoring scheme, becoming an intern or placements.
We've also developed a structured year-long mentoring programme for emerging ensemble companies which aims to equip them with the skills and confidence to establish themselves in the difficult first years. We always aim to be open to informally mentoring and advising young artists when possible. You can also find out about current opportunities with the company here.
