2014 - 2016: Effervescent is working with young people across Plymouth to help them realise their dreams and aspirations.


In 2014 and 2015, Effervescent will be running a brand new, extraordinary project for young people aged 18 – 24 who are interested in developing careers in the visual arts, performing arts and cultural sectors: they will be become our “proteges” for a year.


Through weekend workshops, intense training courses, weekly “studio” sessions, frequent visits to galleries and cultural events, and a unique opportunity to curate a professional art gallery, Effervescent – in partnership with Plymouth University’s School of Art & Media, and Peninsula Arts – aims to give about 40 young people a fresh start and some amazing opportunities to change their lives.


Young people can be nominated (or nominate themselves) for a place on the programme NOW.


The first group started working with us in February 2014.  Our second group of twelve young people are due to start on 7th July 2014 and we are now recruiting.  Dates and an application form are here:   Incubate May 2014 info and application form
