Our Event Management Team is a group of young people that enjoy and learn how to plan and deliver their own events. The group meet on a weekly basis to brainstorm and plan for events they would like to do in the future. When the group have decided what event they would like to do, they develop a plan and make it happen. The group also assist in New Lodge Art’s events; this can be anything from basic stewarding roles to helping out with the production of the event. They are a friendly team that have proved easy to work with and have a good track record in successful events, by young people for young people. The young people have learned a lot from being members of the Event Management team and have gained various skills. One of our members has described his experience being a member of the team;
‘It has been a fab experience, I love every minute of it. I never had any confidence and now I always take on a lead roles like project manager or front of house, like welcoming the people to our event and being ‘the face’ of it.
