Transformations is a project for 16-30 year olds who are not currently in education employment or training. Young people work at The Daimler Powerhouse on authentic commissions/projects with professional artists and engineers developing production, performance, producing, technical and construction skills, gaining a real insight into all aspects of the creation of outdoor and site- specific work, events and festivals. Many young people have completed Transformations and gained entrance to University, further training, apprenticeships or developed the confidence to pursue other career options and life goals.
The current project, Transformations 5 (January -July 2018) is titled Venture is a family friendly performance on a carousel powered by bicycles with a binaural soundtrack designed for touring to festivals and events. Venture is available for booking from August 2018 onwards.
Venture will provide employment to the Transformations group members training in technical, sound support, crewing and stewarding.
Funding partners include: Talent Match, Ambition Coventry, The Heart of England Foundation and Coventry University as part of the 175 Festival programme
