Creative Producers International is a new world-wide talent development programme led by Watershed, which will provide fifteen Creative Producers from across the globe with the skills they need to become the city change-makers of the future.
Successful participants will gain the skills and abilities to have a new kind of conversation with city leaders and keep art at the heart of decision making. They will transform how their community engages with city futures and deliver ground-breaking projects at the intersection of creativity, technology and public space.
The result will be a diverse group of people and cities who influence, challenge and support each other, and have sustainable routes for sharing their knowledge and innovation all over the world. The programme will run from the beginning of October 2017 to the end of December 2019.
The successful Producers will receive a £2,000 bursary every year for three years plus travel, accommodation and per diems to attend events in Bristol and Tokyo, a £5,000 ideas development fund, training, mentoring, support throughout and lots more.
