The LIFT team are a small, upbeat and creative bunch who will guide the LIFT Placements through the day to day activity that goes into creating our world-famous biennial festival, our pioneering work in Tottenham, artist residencies, international networks and more. Available to those currently in education, this opportunity provides students with practical, hands-on experience and sector training that will expand and enhance their skills and support their career development.
This longstanding initiative is an opportunity for students in higher education to get hands-on experience in an international arts organisation, it has been developed in response to a need our Higher Education Institution partners have raised and is only open to students who require a work placement as part of their course, providing a contextual experience for those studying relevant subjects.
Each placement provides additional rather than essential support to the LIFT department in which they are based while gaining an overview of the organisation in general. As well as practical experience, the programme provides participants with guidance and structured feedback and opens doors to many professional networks and opportunities.
