NEKO Trust and Gallowglass have joined forces to develop the Future Crew programme – targeted at individuals with a ‘can do’ attitude who are interested in building a career in the live events sector.
From June to August 2022, Future Crew will offer a free training programme led by Neko Trust’s industry professionals in South West London, focusing on tour management, production management, live sound engineering, backline and live event special effects. Future Crew participants will also gain paid work experience with crewing company, Gallowglass.
“We’re keen to attract those who might face barriers to the industry and proactively support young women and people of the global majority,” NEKO Trust’s Glen Rowe explained. “Together with Gallowglass, we are enabling career progression in a wide range of touring production fields while also giving young people the security and rewards of a solid future in the industry.”
Completion of the programme will lead to guaranteed employment as Event Crew with Gallowglass and clear progression opportunities in the live music sector. Register your interest at: www.nekotrust.org/neko-futures/future-crew
