Talent and skills development is in Frequency’s DNA. We believe in widening access to the arts and developing new talent for the creative industries.
During each festival we create paid internship opportunities for recent graduates from the University of Lincoln to be part of the festival team. This is a supported way to develop skills, experience and employability through direct engagement with the industry. We benefit from increased capacity and fresh ideas, and the sector benefits from a pipeline for new talent. Finally – and most importantly – the RADAR Graduates get mentoring and first-hand experience in a paid role which will hopefully be the launchpad for a successful career in the creative industries.
RADAR is a creative graduate accelerator scheme devised by Threshold Studios in collaboration with the University of Lincoln. It offers paid placements and mentorship for creative graduates looking for a head start after University.
Please note: RADAR Graduates for Frequency Festival 2021 have been selected. Keep an eye out for updates from our RADAR Graduates during their placement.
Testimonials – RADAR alumni & staff
Past participants in the RADAR scheme have gone onto a range of exciting careers such as creative advertising, web development, participatory arts, graphic design, as well as post-graduate study.
“Not only do you receive a great work opportunity, but the support that you get alongside this for your personal development is amazing. The team are genuinely interested in you as a person and helping you on your way to the big, scary world of post-University work.” – Emma Dawson, RADAR Alumni
