IOU are open all year around to any artists, organisations or students who would like support in getting a project off the ground.
STTA: Space | Time | Tools | Advice
STTA is IOU’s professional development programme for individuals or groups from any discipline. It is designed to help realise projects that are in development by providing whatever assistance is needed, whether that is studio space, technical staff time, workshop tools, advice from arts professionals or a combination of all four.
From providing workbenches to assisting with workshops, IOU are open all year around to any artists or organisations who would like support in getting a project off the ground. In addition to hosting artists we are keen to forge partnerships with UK based agencies, collectives and production companies to support artists they are nurturing.
Currently we have partnerships with MMU; Manchester School of Art, Trans Creative and Calderdale LCEP.
If you have a project or idea and are interested in this opportunity to develop it, please email IOU Creative Producer firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are currently studying at a school, college or university you are welcome at IOU to undertake an internship with the team.
The IOU internships offer full access to the team and creative projects and you get out what you put into the process. We provide ways to put your skills into practice, develop employment opportunities or have an artistic adventure.
If there are areas of the creative industries that you may wish to start a career in and would like to try a job on for size to see if it fits, you would be welcome. The team at IOU are all experienced mentors and will support you as you take those first steps in a career.
We are keen upon completion of an internship to maintain contact with you to offer you freelance employment upon graduation from a HE setting. We see Internships as the first step of a working relationship with IOU.
If you have any questions on Internships with IOU please email IOU Producer Jonathan McGrath directly at email@example.com stating the word ‘Internship’ clearly within the subject heading.
