Young Placemakers Wanted

A Free Career Development Opportunity for 15-25 year olds

Do you want to have your say on how a part of Sheffield is developed, and have a chance to pitch your idea to decision makers?

Develop your creative thinking skills?

Gain professional experience that will make you stand out from the rest in interviews with future employers?

We are looking for young people to get involved in our Young Placemakers Applied Creativity Lab programme to re-imagine part of the city.

Over nine weeks you will develop your skills in creative thinking and problem solving to explore a part of Sheffield that is currently under development. At the end of the programme you will pitch your ideas to a panel of professional experts ranging from architects and engineers to community groups and artists.

The programme runs from 27th January to 31st March, with a break for half term. Weekly sessions will take place 5pm to 6pm on Zoom.

Places are FREE but booking is essential.
