Young Creatives

Young Creatives is a specific extended work experience placement for arts and creative students.

Norden Farm's Young Creatives initiative is a chance for students of the arts to experience a real world industry brief and to work on community projects alongside artists, technicians and the public. This project gives students the opportunity to work with incredible arts professionals and to get their work seen by a wide audience.

This Christmas Norden Farm are working with a team of Young Creatives from Berkshire College of Agriculture. The students are creating a winter wonderland window display at The Nicholson Centre in Maidenhead based around Norden Farm's Christmas show, Kipper's Snowy Day. They are also making a Kipper themed story den and will be presenting their Christmas tales from the Nicholson Centre on Saturday mornings throughout December. Pop in to Norden Farm to see their projects in action with a treasure trail around the Farm or head down to The Nicholson Centre during December to take a look at their window display.

Summer Young Creatives Details of our Summer 2022 will be uploaded soon, keep an eye on the website for more details.

The placement is best suited to KS5 students.

Across 4 days you will work with a small group of students alongside technicians and with the guidance and support of a professional artist to curate and install the annual summer Exhibition at Norden Farm.

During this placement participants will:

  • Gain valuable hands on work experience to add to your CV
  • Enhance your leadership, planning and organisational skills
  • Build self-confidence, make friends and have fun
  • Work alongside professional arts practitioners to support activity

This placement is available for a maximum of 6 students.

As you can imagine we become very oversubscribed for placements and therefore prioritise students who go to school/college within the RBWM area first, and then, if placements are still available, to other areas. We also suggest submitting your application as early as possible.

As part of the selection process applicants need to submit a reference - this should be a teacher / lecturer who can offer a reference about your suitability for this placement.
