Free Training for Unemployed Artists

CAN Do Creatives

From May to September 2020, CAN is offering free training sessions for unemployed artists, creatives and community leaders using the arts. The training is for people who are taking their first steps into a career in the arts in the UK.  We especially welcome applications from refugees, women, people aged 50+, young people aged 19 or over, disabled people, and those who have significant barriers to employment.

Sessions can take place over the phone or through video-calls using Zoom or WhatsApp, and will be delivered one-to-one and in groups.

To take part you must be:

  • Aged 19 or over
  • Living in Greater Manchester
  • Unemployed and in receipt of full universal credit, or have no income of your own
  • Have permission to work in the UK
  • Not in full time education

Download an application form here and return it with a Diversity Monitoring Form to We can send both forms by email if you can’t download them. Places will be given based on the strength of your creative work, whether the training is a good fit for your needs, and the above eligibility requirements.

We look forward to hearing from you!
