Future Fossil launches Future Producers competition

Future Producers 2021 officially launched online on Monday 22nd March, with presentations from the Future Fossil team, Future Producers 2021 Ambassador Hannah Olarewaju and MK College and MAKE, who have joined forces to promote this opportunity to young people in the city.

The competition invites people aged 16–25 to enter the Future Producers 2021 Competition, submitting a proposal for a one-day creative event which would take place at the site of the new public artwork Future Fossil in Oxley Park, Milton Keynes in
early autumn 2021. The competition aims to nurture the next generation of emerging cultural producers in Milton Keynes.

The Future Fossil team invites all young people living in and around Future Fossil, or students studying in Milton Keynes’ sixth forms, or undertaking further or higher education (recent graduates are also welcome to apply) to join the launch to learn more, download the competition guidelines and apply. Individuals, as well as new or established groups based in Milton Keynes or with a connection to the city can apply.

The winner/s of Future Producers 2021 will be announced at the Future Fossil Opening Ceremony in summer 2021. The competition winner/s will then take part in a mentoring programme, developing public programming and event planning skills,
from technical know-how to marketing and fundraising, as well as learning how to develop relationships with artists and partners.

The Future Producers winning event will take place in early autumn 2021 at Future Fossil in Oxley Park and will be supported with a budget of £3,000.

Future Producers is commissioned by MK Council and delivered in association with MK College and MAKE.
