IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MONCLER, THE FACE PRESENTS FUTURE ACADEMY.
A PROGRAM PROVIDING PAID OPPORTUNITIES AND OPEN RESOURCES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GET INTO THE CREATIVE INDUSTRIES.
Two individuals from underrepresented backgrounds will each complete paid placement at THE FACE, London and Moncler, Milan. The trainees will embark on a program of bespoke modules, chaired by industry leaders and designed to give them a 360° crash course into the world of media and design with storytelling at the core. They will work towards the end goal of a published project for THE FACE. The initiative is working with Create Jobs to recruit the trainees, an employability program for young Londoners transforming the city’s workforce by supporting and developing individuals who are underrepresented in the creative industries including people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups, people who are d/Deaf and disabled, people from the LGBTQ+ community, neurodiverse people and people from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.
In addition to the two office-based positions, Future Academy will onboard 50 individuals from underrepresented backgrounds who will each have access to online learning resources and virtual mentorship from THE FACE and its network of creatives. Key masterclasses will be broadcast via Zoom for aspiring young creatives around the world to obtain invaluable industry knowledge.
