The Fusion Prize Symposium: The Need
The Fusion Prize is a new competition to find innovative skills development solutions which harness the power of creative and cultural activity to prepare young Londoners for employment. The Fusion Prize invites schools, universities, charities, businesses, social entrepreneurs, and others to work together to pitch ideas for innovative programmes or products designed to develop the creative, communication, organisational, and thinking skills of London’s children or young people though cultural experiences.
On the 17 September 2019 Barbican will welcome all with an interest in skills development, the value of creativity, innovation, and social mobility to the first Fusion Prize Symposium, one of three events comprising of talks, workshops, performances, and networking opportunities.
The three events, in September, October, and November will provide inspiration and support to anyone keen to progress and hone an idea, and at the end of the process, April 2020, one solution will be awarded £50,000 to develop!
