The Cannon Hill Collective is designed to offer young people aged between 16-24 the chance to engage and connect with mac birmingham’s programme. From initiating, producing and delivering their own projects to advising on mac’s wider young people’s programme, the collective will have the opportunity to help shape mac’s provision for young and emerging artists as producers, ambassadors and creative consumers, with a strong emphasis upon cross art form activities, social media, individual progression, diversity and access.
Through the collective, mac birmingham aims to develop young people’s leadership abilities, risk taking and resilience; which will be achieved through working alongside professionals from the field, introducing young people to high quality art work, and creating and presenting original work to be shared with the wider community of young people in Birmingham, The West Midlands and nationally.
