Catalyst

Applications now open for Catalyst, a six month programme in creative campaigning, using what’s gone before to make change today! Read more below.

Apply Now – Deadline for expressions of interest is 23rd July

Apply now for our new six month programme in creative campaigning, using what’s gone before to make change today. You’ll learn about the great tradition of people standing up to make change in the UK and apply this to your own ideas for change in homelessness and housing.

This is a chance to change public perceptions, influence people with power and speak out for what you believe in.

Who is it for?

1. People with energy and enthusiasm who believe that arts and heritage can change the world.

2. People who think that history matters.

3. People who believe that inequality is wrong and that housing is a human right.

4. People who want to challenge the stigma that exists in society.

5. People who want to channel their experiences of homelessness and/or housing vulnerability to make change happen.

6. People who want to work in the museums or in community campaigning – or both!

7. People who can commit to all dates for the September foundation – 6th, 7th, 13th, 14th, 20th, 21th, 27th and 28th.

Successful applicants will take part in an intensive foundation over 8 days in September 2018 (2 days per week) and will then have the opportunity to spend 5 months as a paid Creative Freelancer developing a project with MoH from October 2018 to February 2019

Each Catalyst trainee will be supported to deliver a change-making mini-project by the end of the programme – an event, a workshop, a display, a piece of direct action or a digital campaign.

Who is involved?

The foundation will feature contributions from an inspiring range of people from both the creative and campaigning worlds:

Charlie Craggs, award winning trans activist & author

Dr Chris Scanlon, psychotherapist

Dan Tsu, founder and creative director, Lyrix Organix

David Tovey, artist
