Are you between 16 - 21 years old and want to host an event in the Borough of Weymouth and Portland? 
Then you're in the right place! 

Work alongside Molly Scarborough, a performance artist & b-side team member, to host a mini festival at a venue to be decided by you. The Young Producers Group (YPG) will be a collaboration between 6 - 10 individuals aged between 16 & 21. The aim of the YPG is to produce a site specific mini festival on the Isle of Portland (or Weymouth).

The YPG will start on 21st March & will meet weekly at outpost (b-side's project space) on Tuesdays between 6pm & 8:30pm (apart from school holidays).  At the end of the 10 week collaboration process, the YPG will host a mini festival for half a day during the half term week (29th May - 4th June). 

The deadline for applications is Friday 3rd March and informal interviews will take place the week commencing Monday 6th March.

Previous Work

In September 2016 the YPG performed as part of b-side festival. In the run up to the festival the group went through an 8 week long process of exploring sites on Portland and making performance for the festival. For this project the group worked under the performance name 'anonymART'. 

In December 2016 the YPG curated and produced an Xmas Variety Show that was held during b-side's festive week. The performance event showcased local young talent and celebrated the festive season. Click here to see a snippet of the event.
