The Lowry has launched its brand-new Warm-Up initiative, aiming to help teens take their first steps towards a career in the creative industries.

Part of the venue’s Stage Directions programme, Warm-Up has been developed to offer young people an insight into what to expect and to support them in preparing for job interviews for various creative roles.

Stage Directions was launched by Salford’s Cultural Education Partnership in 2019 – a theatre-making programme for young people living and studying in Salford.

A focus for Stage Directions is ensuring that young people in the region know what pathways are open to them to pursue a career in the creative sector.  Stage Directions works in partnership with local cultural organisations and it commissioned TripleDotMakers to produce the Warm-Up website to demystify the interview process and increase access to roles in arts and media.

Steph Green, Stage Directions Manager, The Lowry said “We can vouch for the exciting array of career options available in the creative industries, and the benefits that a creative career can bring to an individual. Through Stage Directions, we are committed to ensuring that the pathways into a sector that is such an important driver of economic growth in our region, is as accessible to as many young people in our communities as possible.

“Through Warm-Up, we are continuing to nurture creative talent and interest in our young people, by being a stepping stone between learning about what jobs exist and preparing to apply for them, in a tangible way. Warm-Up is just that, a warm-up for a job interview!”
