The Bold Tendencies Art Trainee Programme was founded in 2014 by Diana Córdoba Barrios, our Managing Director. Since then the Working and Learning Programme has been completed by 215 Trainees, joining us from all parts of the UK and further afield.

The ATP gives participants immersion in the day-to-day life of our non-profit arts organisation and helps develop future-proof skills, as well as fostering long-term connections between each other and our wider networks.


The Programme is aimed at young people aged 19-27 of any or no higher/further educational background. We welcome young people at the beginning of university studies, those who have already had employment (including outside the arts) as well as those not in or seeking further education. Our experience has shown that the cross-pollination of this wide age range, varying experience, background, and diverse interests and skills is a positive action.


Working – practical on-site experience and proximity with the administration and operations of the organisation.

Learning – the Traineeship offers a series of learning experiences – from wide-ranging organised talks and visits to connect the Trainees with the world of contemporary culture, to weekly collaborative sessions and individual assignments as well as one-on-one mentoring sessions.

Training – by teaching new practical skills and testing them in application, we hope participants leave us with greater employability and confidence overall.

Peer-networking – working together at Bold Tendencies, and sharing the experience, Trainees develop connections and friendships.

Support - Time on-site compensated in-line with London Living Wage. Travel expenses covered on Learning Days and refreshments provided.


Bold Tendencies is a not-for-profit arts organisation based in Peckham, London. We commission a summer season of visual art and architecture and produce a live events programme of music, dance and opera in our unique home on the rooftop spaces of the former Peckham Multi-Storey Car Park.
