Young Creatives (16-25)

Are you under the age of 25 and keen to get involved in the arts industry? We have several opportunities for young creatives to work with us!

New Creatives - a FREE year-long programme open to 16-25 year olds living in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH), who want to learn the ins and outs of working in the creative & cultural industries. The programme offers an opportunity to gain a Silver Arts Award qualification, and the chance to undertake a work placement during TAKEOVER. Applications will re-open in Autumn 2018.

Pitch to the Mix (PTTM) - gives 16-25 year olds living in London the opportunity to pitch, plan and deliver their own events at Rich Mix, with the support of our team and partners, Livity. Applications will re-open in Spring 2018.

TAKEOVER - our annual summer festival curated by young creatives, for young creatives. Every year we hand the building over to young curators, producers and artists as they host a festival to celebrate and showcase up and coming talent across the industry.

The Rich Mix Scholarship at Escape Studios - we've teamed up with Escape Studios to launch a scholarship. One budding filmmaker will learn how to bring films to life, whilst studying the Compositing for VFX or 3D Foundation course, on a fully paid scholarship at Escape Studios.
