EEA are excited to be working in Partnership with Southwark Council's Arts and Events Team and Children's Services to provide a dynamic new industry training scheme.
Working with 16-21 year olds form across Southwark to produce a professional event this summer, EEA, in collaboration with Ruby Baker, Jane Packham, PR and Marketing Expert and John Higgins of Managing Mayhem, will be providing invaluable training and skills development opportunities from May through to August 2013.
Twenty young people will design, produce and manage their own festival. Southwark Young Producers learn key skills from professional art and event managers, visit festivals in the UK to see events in action and meet professional event producers.
The group will meet weekly to learn new skills including planning a festival, marketing, artist management and bookings, technical requirements and management. Assigned a budget, targets and responsibilities to make their ideas become reality, the group will stage their event in Camberwell in August as part of the Elephant and Nun festival.

See how the Signs of Change project impacted 6 primary schools. The aim is to encourage young people to contribute to their communities.
As the 18-month project draws to a close the young producers have developed a creative heritage scrapbook. See the work they have done.
