Cardboard Citizens is calling out to young singers, rappers and spoken word artists to audition for an exciting paid opportunity beginning in January 2017.

We will be employing 10 young professional artists to create and perform a bespoke music performance as part of our Land Aid production. We are looking for singers, rappers and spoken word artists. The material will be performed as solos, duets and groups, resulting in a climactic choric piece when our 10 performers unite with 70 singers from The Choir with No Name.

This project will take place two evenings a week from 18 January and then there will be one intensive week of rehearsals, from the last week in February. This project will culminate in a performance at The Land Aid Charity’s fundraising dinner at the historic Guildhall Great Hall on 1 March.

This a professional paid opportunity for young people between the ages 16to 25-years-old who are NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) or have experienced homelessness/risk of homelessness.

Auditions will be taking place on Wednesday 11 January from 1pm-4pm at Talawa Theatre Company.
