About the Artworks Trainee Programme

The Artworks Training Programme is a paid traineeship for people aged 18 – 30 from Tower Hamlets. The programme supports young adults in Magic Me’s home borough to gain knowledge, skills and confidence to access careers in the arts.

The Traineeship offers practical skills and experience supporting creative projects in your community through on-the-job training. Between June – July, you will work alongside Artists and Care Staff on Magic Moments – a project bringing creative activities to Care Homes (Care Homes provide accommodation and personal care for older people who need extra support in their daily lives).
