The “People Power Partnership”, plans to unite 11 countries from across Europe through the historic dance cultural movement of hip-hop.

The organisers are looking for up to 20 young people (aged 18 – 25) from Grimsby to participate in the project each year, who will each receive a life-changing development opportunity.

To enter no experience is necessary but be willing to learn from other young people across Europe.

The lucky young people will then work with National Portfolio Organisation Magna Vitae, to develop a performance piece to be delivered in public spaces in Grimsby in the second half of 2021.

The project will also involve a collaboration with other young creative dancers from 12 other European towns and cities culminating in a large-scale ‘finale’ in Freiburg, Germany.  

This large-scale production will then be toured around Europe including a performance in Grimsby

By gaining this opportunity our town will be able to develop and showcase its world class potential with a large scale audience.

Cllr Callum Procter, Cabinet member for culture, said: “This is a really exciting programme where Grimsby’s amazing creative talent can get involved with others on an international scale.”

“ I’m really looking forward to putting Grimsby on the map for great cultural reasons!”

Auditions will take place in the spring for anyone wanting to take part.
