The Poetic Relief Project is a youth employment scheme, supported by The National Lottery Community Fund, to bring new opportunities for young people to find employment in the creative industries.
Launched in August 2021, The Poetic Relief Project provides programmes and services to support young people’s mental health, personal development, and community cohesion. The Cultural Leaders youth employment scheme allows the Theatre Peckham, Black Cultural Archives and Poetic Unity to train and give 12 young people jobs in the creative industry every year for the next three years, where they will learn the daily operations of each charity.
Applications are now open for the second cohort of Cultural Leaders. Visit our Vacancies page for information on how to apply.
