Young Producers is a new project for young people who have taken part in Making Tracks, supported by the Arts Patron Trust. Our first 2 Young Producers Helen and Johnny are collaborating to put on a gig involving other young people and will be blogging about the process.
Johnny’s blog #1:
First day, found the ‘CAN’ building on time, nice. Electronic sign in and security, new to this but it makes you feel important I guess. First meeting in the board room with the team was an interesting setting as it almost felt like we were on ‘The Apprentice’. Lord Sugar was not present for the meeting this time, ‘phew’.
We went through an overview of the project and discussed our expectations. This was a useful exercise to talk about what we were going to be part of, in advance as a summary. We identified our artforms, reflected on strengths and weaknesses, set ourselves personal challenges and an action plan to keep on track. We also included how this would be implemented, documented and reflected during the project. We decided on using ‘Artbox’ to upload any of this material.
Then we got down to planning the event. We used a timeline to show from the start to the finish, including key dates and information, which was really useful to see in this format.
Off to a flying start!
Great first day if you ask me. Good to see all the familiar faces from previous events and projects. Felt like we were part of a strong, familiar team. Respect to ITT.
