Sound Engineer Training Opportunities
Creative Republic Of Cardiff is very pleased to offer free sound training places for 3 women/girls/non-binary people from Cardiff & surrounding areas, who may have a qualification or basic start in sound but not necessarily the working experience in a live music venue.
The UK audio industry is currently only 5% women and therefore we would like to help get more women/girls/nb people into our local music industry with real opportunities.
The scheme is supported by MUSIC VENUE TRUST and RED STRIPE, for their EARN YOUR STRIPES initiative. Earn Your Stripes is funded by Red Stripe and administered by MVT, to enable 50 young people to be placed in internships ranging from lighting assistant and promoter to sound engineer at one of the hundreds of small venues across the UK.
There is one opportunity for a young person, however we are also matching the funding with two more places for ANY AGE.
Successful applicants will be provided with:
- 20 hours free sound training in a live music venue (times / days can be negotiated between you, spread over a few weeks)
- Shadowing placements with sound engineers to gain plenty of experience in different live music scenarios, so you’re ready for shifts and to start approaching venues for work
- Placement in a local music festival 25th and/or 26th August - travel/childcare/similar costs that may be a barrier to this will be reimbursed
- Paid work at a music venue once you’re ready to start shifts
To apply please send either a CV or some information about yourself to email firstname.lastname@example.org by Fri 20th July 2018.
