Learning & Engagement At The Lowry

What does it all mean?

Our life-changing community work is all about connecting The Lowry and its artistic programme to people and communities across Salford. Our ethos and some examples of this work are outlined below.

Our Ethos

Our community work focuses on the following five areas:

• Targeted Engagement
• Talent Development
• Employability & Skills
• Learning & Participation
• Creative Leadership

The content of the annual programme that delivers against these strategic pillars draws its inspiration from The Lowry’s artistic programme and from the wealth of opportunities that exist for people and communities to engage across the breadth of The Lowry.

This strategy also finds wider context in supporting the broader strategic agenda of The Lowry’s two main stakeholders: Arts Council England and Salford City Council.
The strategy is delivered with partnership at its heart by the dedicated Learning & Engagement team alongside other teams across The Lowry.

The Lowry’s Learning & Engagement programme with young people is supported by

Cargill Plc, The Rayne Foundation, The Zochonis Charitable Trust, The Taylor Family Foundation, The Booth Charities, The Evan Cornish Foundation, The Lyndal Tree Foundation, The Philip Bates Trust, Margaret Guido’s Charitable Trust

The YES Programme

Our Youth Employment Scheme

The Lowry’s Youth Employability & Skills (YES) Programme is a high quality creative employability scheme which utilises the skills, talents & resources of The Lowry to engage with NEET / at risk young people, aged 14 – 25, from Salford and beyond.

Through our YES programme we provide bespoke creative and work-based learning opportunities for targeted young people. These opportunities range from first access visits, such as world of work backstage tours through to longer term work placements. We focus on personal development, building transferable skills including confidence, communication and future planning.
Our YES projects and placements also focus on work related learning, equipping young people with practical skills and helping them to become work ready or progress onto other training. There are group opportunities, suitable for PRU’s, alternative education providers, access groups or other groups of young people who need additional support to engage in education, training or employment.

Individual placements are available for young people who are not in employment, education or training or at risk of disengagement from education. For more information, please contact: Lynsey O'Sullivan
