A new project for young people will launch in February 2023 as part of the legacy of Knowsley’s year as the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture in 2022
The Throwback Collective is aimed at 18-26 year olds from Knowsley and across the wider city region who have an interest in arts, culture, music, history or working with communities.
Through the project, young people will have the opportunity to gain new professional skills while working collaboratively with their peers to gain experience in developing and delivering a community arts or cultural project.
The project has been made possible thanks to National Lottery Players, through funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund
The collective will meet twice a month at The Culture Hub in Huyton Library with additional remote sessions to be held online.
The project will last for three months and will result in the group organising and delivering a public event, exhibition, or creative piece of work.
Cllr Margaret Harvey, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services said: “Our year as Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture has shone a spotlight, not only on the amazing cultural offer we have here in Knowsley but also on the appetite from our communities to be part of these unique and special moments.
“The legacy of the year is as important as the year itself and it’s fantastic that one of the first projects in 2023 is for our young people. This is a great opportunity for them to gain some valuable experience and insight into the planning and delivery of cultural events.”
On Tuesday 31 January a special welcome session to meet the team and find out more about the opportunity will be held online. Book your free place here: Throwback Collective – Young Producers: Online welcome session Tickets, Tue 31 Jan 2023 at 18:00 | Eventbrite
