New heritage project courtesy of Bristol Old Vic
We are excited to share this opportunity for students on behalf of Bristol Old Vic, in partnership with Black South West Network, who are recruiting a group of young people aged 16 – 18 to take part in a Heritage project aimed at interrogating its archives through digital storytelling. Working as a group with professional artists, facilitators and heritage experts, the group will investigate the history of the stage play Arabian Nights in Bristol over the last 250 years.
Participants will gain valuable experience for their CV or further education applications, as well as the opportunity to creatively direct a project whilst working as part of a team.
The project is free to attend, and bus travel to Bristol Old Vic will be reimbursed.
The theatre is looking for young people with an interest in areas such as history, theatre, digital storytelling or citizenship who are passionate about change and would thrive in the opportunity to share their perspectives and have their voices heard. It particularly encourages applications from young people from the Global Majority who identify with the themes of the project, especially those with Asian, Middle Eastern and North African heritage.
Please note that students can only take part if they are 16 years old or 16 by April 2024.
