A NEW creative talent development programme for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) creatives is now open for applications.

Creative Catalyst from B3 Media is aimed at 18-25 year olds who are at the beginning of their creative journey.

The six-week programme aims to help 12 young emerging BAME creatives experimenting with a variety of digital media to fast track their careers.

Participants will be invited to take part in a taster session and then a series of workshops in early January 2020. The workshops will be focused on film, spoken word, and virtual reality. During the programme, finalists will transform their ideas throughout the development process, learn hands-on skills, and gain confidence in their creative process.

At the end of the scheme, participants will pitch to a panel of judges composed of industry experts as well as an audience of friends, family and members of local community. Each of the young people will also work on a personal development plan with a B3 Media executive.

Launched as a partner programme to TalentLab, a bespoke talent development programme for BAME creatives, B3 Media’s alumni will return to pass on what they’ve learnt to Creative Catalyst finalists.

B3 Media, a creative media arts network that helps creative innovators and digital artists develop, produce, and distribute their work, taking them from the first spark of an idea through to the initial showing and beyond, works to develop and produce innovative programmes and projects that celebrate and showcase emerging diverse and underrepresented talent.

The programme welcomes the ambitious, the curious and those who want to stretch their abilities as creative practitioners.

Applicants must be:

  • 18-25 years old.
  • BAME creatives.
  • Young people who live/work/study in the Lambeth area.
  • Be interested in film, storytelling and digital media.
