Artists, photographers and stage managers are being invited to get some hands-on experience with a creative project across South Holland.

Transported is giving people interested in a career in the arts the chance to join a shadowing programme, working alongside performers and workshop leaders bringing events to the area this summer.

A Transported spokesman said: “The opportunities are voluntary and will be of particular interest to local artists and students, covering a wide range of arts forms, including photography, performing arts, technical and stage management to name a few.”

Transported is also running a free development programme where those involved in the project will visit existing arts programmes and organisations, talks and presentations by professionals from the arts world and Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Leeds.

Meanwhile, plans are in place for Transported to visit Parliament next month when a celebratory event takes place at Portcullis House, Westminster, on July 17.

South Holland and the Deepings MP John Hayes will be unveiling artwork commissioned by Transported to be carried on lorries run by Spalding haulage firm FreshLinc.

The spokesman said: “Transported is just over a year into our exciting programme to bring high quality arts experiences to the people and places of South Holland and we are marking the occasion with a ceremonial unveiling of our most recent commission.”
