    An ambitious partnership supports emerging Black creatives in the UK

    Reframe is supported by Apple and produced by the Southbank Centre with Factory International, STEAMhouse and Midlands Arts Centre (MAC).

    • The Residency: an intensive, industry-led training and development programme for up to 80 emerging creatives aged 18 – 30 looking to develop their skills in music, photography and film-making. 
    • Inspire Schools: a project for 21 secondary schools to spark a passion for creativity among the next generation of talent, providing a powerful creative experience for participants early in their creative journeys.

    These two distinct programmes are offered across three creative hubs: in London at the Southbank Centre, and by working in partnership with Factory International in Manchester, and STEAMhouse and MAC in Birmingham.  

    Together, we aim to inspire Black creatives to make the art of the future, building a cultural legacy for the UK.
