Foot in the Door (FITD) is a series of courses that will enable Birmingham based young people aged between 16-23 to grow their employability skills, giving them a minimum of 90 hours experience working within an organisation and getting a head start in the creative sector. FITD is an opportunity for 60 young creatives through July-December 2017 to build a legacy in the creative and cultural industry in Birmingham.

Creative Alliance is working with 9 partner organisations with funding from Arts Connect to help the city’s creative talent.

Partners include: Bareface, Beatfreeks, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Blue Whale Training, CBSO, DanceXchange, DESIblitz, mac and The REP.
