Somerset House are looking for young creatives from underrepresented backgrounds who are interested in collaborating, creating and producing
This year Somerset House are launching their new Young Producers collective which will offer paid opportunities for young people to co-produce new work as part of their cultural programme.
They are aiming to recruit 6 Young Producers with an interest in Black history, heritage and culture for this particular project as it links to their anti-racism pledge.
This is a collaborative project co-produced with design studio and Somerset House Studios residents, Comuzi. Comuzi will work with the Young Producers to co-create a digital resource inspired by the history of Somerset House, the lived experiences of the group, their creative interests, and their research findings. In response to the Black Lives Matter campaign, we have written an anti-racism pledge which includes looking into our history with a historian/s. We would like for the historian/s to interact with this group of Young Producers in developing our understanding of Somerset House’s past.
As a Black owned business, with a background in supporting young people to create innovative solutions, we believe Comuzi are the perfect partners to mentor the Young Producers and to support the creation of something truly impactful.
It is envisioned that the resulting digital resource will be one that offers new perspectives, has a legacy and will be available for Somerset House audiences to access online.
