This event is an audio-visual exhibition to showcase a project to develop entrepreneurial skills in young people. It will share the work and voices of young people who have taken part in the project in communities similar to Boscombe across 4 countries.
It will also share the experiences of people in business or local organisations who set up the project.
The exhibition will run for 3 days and be open for public access. There are different activities on each day, which are relevant to different people. Young people can join us on day 1 for a taster session of the entrepreneurship skills project. On day 2 we’ll welcome local organisations and business to discover the potential of the scheme for their future. Day 3 we will invite local policymakers and education representatives to learn how the project might be supported more widely.
Not everyone wants to be an entrepreneur, but entrepreneurial skills can not only help young people to start their own businesses, they can also help boost their employability. This exhibition and set of activities looks at how a new project can help young people to build an entrepreneurial mindset to open up diverse career opportunities.
