The Junior Ambassador programme is a 12-month opportunity for young artists aged 14 – 18 years old to represent the charity as ambassadors and work with us to develop and deliver our work. Throughout the year they receive mentoring from Director Avatâra Ayuso as well as support to deliver projects they want to see within the charity or projects of their own outside of the charities framework.
Some of the skills developed during the programme include:
