Man Made Youth Company launches new online creative residencies for young men aged 14+
From next week, Man Made Youth Company is launching a new artistic initiative and learning and participation programmes including online dance and movement sessions and interactive creative residencies. This free opportunity is open to young men/male-identifying young people from Birmingham and the West Midlands who are interested in joining our company on Saturdays and during the holidays.
Man Made Youth Company is an all-male youth performance initiative led by MAC Associate Artist Johnny Autin and managed by Creative Academies Network. It aims to inspire and empower young men aged 14-21 through high-quality dance training, choreography workshops, performance opportunities, digital arts and films. Man Made provides opportunities to hundreds of young people and emerging artists across the Midlands to be involved in multi-disciplinary performing arts activities.
“At this time of great uncertainty, we want to continue to promote and celebrate young people’s creative development. We are keen to ensure that Man Made Youth Company carries on supporting young men/male-identifying performers from Birmingham and the West Midlands. We are pleased to be launching this new online programme next week with our first session on Saturday 16 May. If you know any boy/young man interested in dance from the region, please let them know about Man Made.”
-Artistic Director, Johnny Autin
