As an organisation we strive to work with both young people and emerging artists.
Throughout the festival period we offer bursary opportunities to students in college and University studying locally.
Currently we are running a Young Producer Group where local young people can make work and host their own events around Weymouth & Portland.
Past projects have included young people working directly with artists and producers to create work for unusual spaces including Debenhams store, an old unsused school building and a church yard. To see previous Encounters projects click here.
Most recently we have worked with a group of 10 dance students from IPACA on the South Dorset Ridgeway. Click here to find out more.
