Be part of the next generation of creative artists in Doncaster!

Cast and Expect Arts are looking to recruit five young people, aged 16-19, from across Doncaster to become Young Leaders in the arts. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone with an interest in creative arts, particularly those considering a career in arts and culture.


What is involved?

As a Young Leader, you will gain hands-on experience in the delivery of a variety of creative activities, assisting arts professionals to run workshops in dance, drama and theatre with children and young people across your area. You will have the chance to assist in creative sessions that include after school activities and holiday clubs.

In order to ensure that you are fully supported, you will receive three mentoring sessions and two whole group training events, as well as ongoing support from session leaders. We will also assist with travel costs.

In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to further develop your skills and interests here at Cast with bespoke opportunities created to nurture your individual talents, from directing to technical support to participatory arts to marketing.
