MyKindaCrowd has partnered with Channel 4 to launch a C4 Pop Up roadshow for 16- to 25-year-olds across the UK. Our next event takes place in Wolverhampton on 17 September 2015. We would love for your organisation to help us reach out to talented young people who are passionate about working in the media industry.
What is C4 Pop Up?
C4 Pop Up is a national outreach programme of skills workshops and challenges, taking place across the UK, to promote careers within the media industry and to identify undiscovered talent.
As the official UK broadcaster of the Rio 2016 Paralympic games, the theme of diversity and inclusivity is central to the project and the young people will be working on Rioinspired media challenges. Workshops focus on factual production, marketing, or digital, and are facilitated by our tutors and Channel 4 freelancers. At the end of each workshop, the challenge submissions will be viewed and judged by a C4 panel. Each winning team from the three creative workshops will be asked to attend a C4 Experience Day where the overall winners will be announced. Meanwhile, individuals who are identified as possessing talent (based on merit, aptitude and effort) will be offered CVenhancing opportunities with Channel 4.
Where and when is the event?
North East Wolverhampton Academy, WolverhamptonThursday 17 September 2015, 9am until 6pm.
The application website is now live at 4talent.channel4.com/4talent-days.
Registration closes on Thursday 20 August 2015. Specific details of the venue and event will be revealed once the applicants have successfully passed through an online application process.
MyKindaCrowd will hand-pick the winners based on experience and opportunity.
Who can apply?
The event is for anyone over 16 who wants to break into the media industry. We never say ‘you must have this’ or ‘you must be like that’ – we love it when the group is really diverse.
All that matters is that you’re truly passionate about the media industry, and that you’ve got a bit of raw talent that sets you apart from the crowd.
