Pick of the Week: Young Arnolfini

Rife Guide Picks of the Week

Find out what’s on the Rife Guide this week, including a chance to join a talented group of creators.

The weather is looking a bit autumnal (read: blowing a gale) this week, so we’ve rustled up a load of brilliant indoor activities for you to do in the warm. Don’t say we don’t treat you well.

This week, you have the chance to find out more about what’s going on at Arnolfini, one of the UK’s leading performing art venues. All sorts of cool stuff happens in this building – from dance and film, to visual arts exhibitions and workshops. And behind the scenes, putting on events and helping the staff with exhibitions, are a group of amazing young people aged 16-24.

This group – Young Arnolfini – have a taster session running this Wednesday. You can meet the current group, plus their mentors, and to have a chat about what the group does and what its next projects are. This is an amazing opportunity for anyone interested in working in the Arts – perhaps in event management, or curation. You’ll gain practical skills in putting on big, prestigious events – like the Young People’s Festival of Ideas, and meet some amazing contacts who might be able to help you out with jobs in the future.

The first of two taster sessions is on Wednesday from 5-7pm, at the Arnolfini. It’s free to attend, and its an amazing opportunity for boosting your CV. Full details can be found here, on the Rife Guide.
