People Express is aware of the lack of representation at Board level of cultural organisations, including our own. When consulted on why they thought this might be young people said ‘nobody asked me’.
The project aims to introduce up to 60 young people to the role of ‘trustee’, to provide a 6 to 9 month training and support programme, to recruit young people onto project steering groups and 1 to 2 young trustees to our Board.
The project will also develop our website to be increasingly inter-active, young people friendly and to be an inspirational cultural resource.
Helping to create the next generation of cultural leaders.
The main aim of the project is to enable the group to 'gift' their personal stories, experiences,learning, passions and the belief that 'life is for living' to other people affected by dementia. They are reaching out to carers, people who are newly diagnosed and creating awareness pre-diagnosis.
Are there any artists involved?
Links to video's etc.
The film is commisioned by Derbyshire County Council.
Developed in partnership with Amber Valley Dementia Peer Support Group and Filmcity Production Agency Ltd.
