RicNic is supported by an amazing network of performers, artists and creative professionals who provide invaluable guidance, mentoring, masterclasses and work experience for young people aged 25 and under. We also work with arts partners across the UK to signpost participants to volunteering, training and internship opportunities. Masterclass events are listed on our What’s On diary. Current opportunities with partners will be listed below. Please contact us if you are looking for an arts mentor or have a question about a particular area of the arts.

Volunteering Opportunity - West Midlands Our partners at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall have been working incredibly hard throughout 2020 to refurbish and improve the venue while shows cannot open. Rather than ask their local performance ommunity for financial donations, they have set up a volunteering system asking people to donate their time to jobs that would otherwise incur them a large cost - from sorting through old props and costumes, to repainting the stage and dressing rooms they are keen to hear from anyone who would like to gain experience of working in a performance venue. Opportunities for casual work front of house, backstage and in hospitality are also available once their performance programme reopens. Click here to find out more.
Further opportunities will be posted as they come in

“It turned into a family. It was very intense and everyone truly cared. The fact it was run by young people meant it was a safe environment to take risks and the lack of judgment and freedom of expression both aided us in the creative process”
