Poet in the City is excited to be partnering with Wac Arts to deliver Wac Arts Young Producers in January 2021. Over a series of 4 creative producer workshops, a team of talented young people aged 15+ will create and produce their own virtual event developing key skills in curation, programming, production, and marketing.

Lydia Entwistle, Engagement Officer at Wac Arts said:

"It's been inspiring to see Poet in the City as a driving force for supporting employment pathways into the arts for young people. We're very excited to be collaborating with them on offering a Young Producers programme for our community at Wac Arts. It's been a challenging year and it's great to be able to offer our young people tangible opportunities for upskilling, personal development and engaging with our wider community."

Sarisha Kumar, Producers programme lead said:

"We're proud to be partnering with Wac Arts and expanding our work with young people beyond our flagship Poet in the City Producers programme in the new year. This project is an exciting opportunity for us to deliver our co-production model in a hyper-local setting, centring the voices, ideas and creativity of young Camden residents and the Wac Arts community."
