Accelerate Internship programme

Launched in 2018, in partnership with the University of Hull, our Accelerate development programme gives three full-time students the opportunity to join our team as paid interns from July to September to develop their careers in the arts and be part of the team that deliver's Hull's biggest arts festival. 

Following its success last year, we’re once again looking to recruit three students from the University of Hull to take part in paid internships - from Festival Administration, Artist Liaison to Production - to help deliver Freedom Festival 2019.

The aim of Accelerate is to build knowledge, aspiration, ambition and critical skills, giving participants the opportunity to develop valuable transferable skills in readiness for a career in the arts or wider industry sectors.

We’re proud to continue our partnership with the University of Hull, a relationship underpinned by a shared commitment to exploring issues pertaining to human rights, nurturing talent, reducing barriers to the arts and education and driving innovation. 

Are you a student at the University of Hull or do you know someone who is? For more information about the Accelerate programme email us at info@freedomfestival.co.uk
