We prioritise our venue and digital platforms as a space for young people to share their artistic work with a wider public and sometimes as part of our cultural programme.
We are committed to providing opportunities for paid work wherever possible, through both artistic commissions and operational roles. We prioritise candidates within our defined communities of young people (see Who We Work With) and are commited to paying fair and equitable rates in line with the official Real Living Wage at minimum.
TRAINING & MENTORING
We occasionally offer specific training courses and mentoring opportunities for young people looking wanting to work, or already working, as an artist or in the creative sector.
We value our volunteers enormously. We seek to accommodate young people who wish to volunteer with us wherever possible, both casually and through more formal programmes such as work-experience with our partner schools and college. We like to work with young people who are genuinely interested in the work of The GAP, and prioritise individuals within our defined communities of young people, who want to develop skills and experience within the cultural sector, as well as those who have a specific skill to offer.
