iDreamA platform to train music artists, producers, dancers…
iDream® is a platform aiming to train music artists, producers, dancers and anyone pursuing such careers by using key partners to educate, develop and channel talent on a professional level to the industry.
In light of the large number of great projects that entered the first round of funding applications, an additional award of £5,000 to iDream to pilot iDream Academy, which will run a series of workshops in Peterborough schools to give young talents the opportunity to develop their skills and enable them to connect to key professionals in the industry.
Skills: Peterborough has a skills gap between local talent and the creative market place. This was demonstrated by the Challenge put on Brainwave Innovation Portal: “How can we help our artists contribute to the city’s economic success?”
iDream Academy — After School Workshops that will consist of the delivery of dance workshops in the schools of Peterborough, and gradually expanding to the rest of the region and eventually into more regions.
iDream plans to use the grant to develop the pilot iDream Academy. In developing the future creative artists of the city, it will enable new companies to develop and so support enterprise within the city — another major challenge for Peterborough.
