LU Arts offers current students and recent graduates opportunities at Loughborough University to gain experience of working in an arts environment through volunteering and casual employment.

We regularly employ students as apprentices to the contemporary artists working with us, and in roles ranging from box office to marketing to assisting with the organisation and running of our events.

One of our most exciting opportunities allows current students to gain valuable experience in programming, marketing, and organising events by applying for our creative writing/spoken word and singer songwriter scholarships. In addition to a cash prize and package of mentoring/support, these scholarship students are responsible for delivering two Speech Bubble sessions or two Acoustic nights. This means seeking out and inviting both professionals and students to perform, securing a venue for the events, working with a technical crew on sound and lighting design, working with a designer on printed publicity materials, and promoting the event through a range of channels including social media.

Get in touch at luarts@lboro.ac.uk to find out more about these opportunities.
