Neon Dance offer paid Cultural Connector roles to young people aged 18-24.
Selected through an open call process, our Cultural Connectors work alongside Neon's Artistic Director Adrienne Hart and are mentored by industry experts including Float PR founder / Director of Music & Communications (Nura) Sofia Ilyas.
Cultural Connectors supporting Neon’s Autumn 2018 touring of ‘Puzzle Creature’ included Rin Terada, Abbey Darling, Izzy Inkpen Simmons, Christiana Bissett, Lucia Fortune-Ely and Jorja Follina.
What we offer
Since 2016 we have invited creative self-starters aged 18 - 24 to record and describe Neon’s work on their own terms. We offer half a day mentoring, opportunities to join us in the studio alongside a bespoke framework of support and company access.
Before launching our national Cultural Connectors initiative, we offered paid Media Internships to southwest based 18-24 year olds. Discover who took part and find out what they are up to now…
