A partnership between the Arts & Culture Trust (ACT), the Nedbank Arts Affinity, and the Delicious Festival will offer young creatives valuable skills development opportunities.
The DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival is a fresh and innovative festival property. The festival is now in its 4th year in South Africa and demonstrating incredible growth in very tough market conditions.
“Young Johannesburg-based arts managers and aspirant producers are encouraged to take advantage of this exciting opportunity,” says Pieter Jacobs, CEO of the Arts & Culture Trust.
“This unique project has been designed to enhance theoretical knowledge and offer hands on experience learning from and working alongside the gurus putting together the popular DStv Delicious Festival,” he explains.
The ACT | Nedbank Arts Affinity Development Programme at the Delicious Festival will kick off with four intensive workshops facilitated by the Festival’s Media Director, Onicka van der Sandt, Festival Directors, Lloyd Cornwall and Tom Pearson-Adams, and social media agency One Over One.
Workshops will include Innovation in Media, Marketing and PR, Social Media, Business and Sponsorship as well as Financing and Contracts.
Four two-hour compulsory workshops will be hosted on 12 and 19 September. These will be followed by a twelve-day internship working alongside the festival’s marketing and media specialists, talent manager or production team in the run-up to the festival.
Successful participants will be offered a stipend for their involvement as interns. Submissions are due by no later than 21 August 2016. Click here to submit your application.
