Talent & Artist Development
Opportunities for artists and new talent to work with established creatives
Through our relationships with world-class artists and our network of partnerships and resident organisations, we offer opportunities for the next generation of creatives.
Southbank Centre's Talent & Artist Development programme nurtures and supports future generations of artists and creative industry professionals.
We are proud to work in partnership with a number of organisations to deliver courses in visual arts and curation, literature and poetry, music, and workforce development across the creative industries, including technical production skills. We are also privileged to champion leading youth music and talent development organisations Tomorrow’s Warriors and Kinetika Bloco.
From one-day workshops to longer-form courses, we provide opportunities for emerging talent to work with established artists and industry professionals to hone their knowledge, skills and craft; build peer and professional networks; and develop their careers and employment pathways.
This free opportunity, taking place weekly on Wednesdays in term time, is open to all young people aged 10 – 18, regardless of experience or ability
