Creative Producers International is a new worldwide talent development programme led by Watershed, which will provide fifteen Creative Producers from across the globe with the skills they need to become the city change-makers of the future.
Expanding and leveraging the Playable City concept, the scheme launched today is a landmark extension of the Playable City network and will drive a new wave of international activity.
The programme will run from the beginning of October 2017 to the end of December 2019 and the result will be a diverse group of people and cities who influence, challenge and support each other – sharing knowledge and innovation.
The successful Producers will receive a £2,000 bursary every year for three years plus travel, accommodation and per diems to attend events in Bristol and Tokyo, a £5,000 ideas development fund, training, mentoring, support throughout and lots more.
The Creative Producers International partners are Royal Shakespeare Company, Manchester International Festival, Somerset House, Unlimited, Lagos Urban Network (Nigeria), Rhizomatiks (Japan) and Labaratorio para la Ciudad (Mexico), each of whom will nominate a Creative Producer to join the programme,
The remaining eight participants will be selected through a worldwide open call for applicants, open now.
