Bermondsey Project Space is launching a year-long series of arts festivals throughout 2024 in collaboration with Southwark Council and the Thriving High Streets Fund.

The THR!VE Festivals are focused on nurturing emerging talent and supporting communities to be part of their local high streets through arts and culture.
BPS will be supporting paid interns to develop and deliver week-long arts festivals throughout the year, offering real world experience and professional guidance.

Want to get involved?

We are recruiting six paid interns throughout 2024 to take part in designing, developing and delivering the arts festivals. Interns must be aged between 18-25 and live in Southwark. We heavily encourage applications from those who are persons of colour or from other ethnic minority backgrounds.
