PAPER Arts CIC: Engagement Producer

PAPER Arts CIC is a social enterprise set-up 6 years ago to support young aspiring creatives to develop meaningful careers. Our PAPER Arts Youth Programmes provide industry knowledge, mentoring and creative enterprise training to empower young people aged between 18-30.
