Background

Artworks is a Community Arts Trainee Programme for people living in Tower Hamlets. The programme is designed to address inequalities in the arts, so we are particularly looking for people who reflect Magic Me’s local community in Tower Hamlets, including people from Asian, Black and other minority ethnic backgrounds, and working class backgrounds.

Funded by London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Artworks will offer paid placements at Magic Me between 2020 – 2023, empowering local residents to begin their career in the arts. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the programme has been designed to enable Trainees to plan and run their own intergenerational arts event, as well as work on Magic Me’s current programme.

Artworks is funded by London Borough of Tower Hamlets
