ReBels Masterclasses

Your Thursday nights sorted!

The ReBel masterclasses have two strands.

There will be weekly masterclasses for 15-25 year old that will give you a space to learn, ask questions and hear from industry experts about anything and everything to do with the cultural sector. We will run 5 every half term - on producing, freelancing, technical skills, digital and overviewing a specific industry.

These are FREE and you can attend as many as you'd like (if there are spaces obviously!)

We will (eventually following lockdown and covid restrictions) also be running monthly 2 day masterclasses for anyone in the city who wants to get a chance to really delve in deep into a new skill. These will be for a maximum of 13 people and will be hands on sessions on anything and everything from VJing, puppetry, greenscreen motion capture to writing your own protest songs.

We think it's important that you get to see, hear and learn from the best and get a chance to hear about and get excited about all the creative careers you could have.

It doesn't matter if you know nothing about the subject - take a risk and see where these masterclasses take you.

Learn about everything from how a record gets made and distributed to fundraising, how to do your tax return, producing outdoor events, to what a dramaturg is and who on earth is a 'fixer'.

Masterclasses will feature these subject areas
