We’re looking for a group of passionate 16-25 year olds to take part in MLF 2021/22 Young Producers’ Programme. Participants will get the opportunity to help curate and deliver an event/events for MLF22.

As a Young Producer, you’ll be given a budget, support and guidance to help bring your event ideas to life. Through a series of regular workshops with MLF staff and other industry professionals, you will gain invaluable experience in putting on events: from programming and marketing to event management and artist liaison.

You will be programming events for our MLF22 Spring programme. In the past, we have welcomed engaging and inspiring writers, musicians, artists, illustrators, poets and activists from Inua Ellams, Neil Gaiman, Danez Smith, Nikesh Shukla, Kae Tempest, Guy Garvey, Ocean Vuong and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) to Angela Davis, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Patrisse Khan-Cullors (Black Lives Matter co-founder) and Slay in Your Lane.

This is the perfect opportunity to showcase your creativity, learn from experts and enhance your CV. What are you waiting for?

We welcome all young people and encourage people of all backgrounds to get involved. No previous experience or knowledge necessary.

To apply please fill in this simple application form.

Closing date for applications: 30 June 2021

Start date: September 2021

Commitment: 2 hrs per week term time (plus additional days in March 2022 running up to the event/s)
