Case Studies

Sian Dudley, Head of Marketing and Communications at Cast

"What's great about DSA, is it gives us the chance to broker skills sharing opportunities between creative professionals and young people - opening up the chance for them explore and express their creative potential, which is what we're here to do.

Let's not underestimate, taking time out of the day job is a big commitment for anyone. But ultimately, as the education system continues to evolve, we are responsible for providing the skills, pathways and igniting the potential in local young people more than ever.

In my experience, the young people of Doncaster are vibrant, enthusiastic, cooperative, bright and thirsty for opportunity - and we should all be dedicated to helping them find their way as we are in the creative and cultural sector through this special and impactful partnership programme."
