50 young people will take part in a dynamic week of enterprise training sessions, be matched with a mentor from industry and will work on briefs for 25 growing local organisations, helping to deliver high-quality products and services across the areas of graphic design, photography, animation, fine art and advertising. The candidate pool will include exciting and emerging creatives in the local area, looking for opportunities to help them launch their careers.

The project will help support a fertile local business market whilst driving down youth unemployment by developing their employability skills and signposting them to work.
