Cultural Leaders (Poetic Unity)
The Cultural Leaders Youth Employment Scheme provides paid work for 6 young people (aged 18-30) every 6 months with Poetic Unity, Theatre Peckham, and Black Cultural Archives. The scheme, which is part of the Poetic Relief Project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, gives young people real on the job experience in the charity and art sectors. The Cultural Leaders will run poetry workshops, events, provide support for the community and learn about the daily operations of the charity they are designated too.
The first cohort of Cultural Leaders started in September 2021, and they have been a great success! The Cultural Leaders have helped each charity extend their impact and they have learnt transferable skills they can use for future employment.
