Work with us.

Get It Done specialises in creating socially-impactful projects working with young people and community groups.

 

Our work is twofold:

 

1. We work directly with communities to facilitate creativity and create measurable social change.

 

2. We upskill young people with the tools to lead impactful projects and professionalise their creative practices. 

We do this through:

1. Mentoring and coaching students.

We provide support to young people aged 16-25 to take the next steps in their career and build professional skills for development and to gain work in the creative industries.

2. Talks and workshops.

We give talks to young people on how to professionalise their practice, including our story of how we went from a group of young friends filled with ideas to creating an established arts organisation working across the UK. We also speak about our experience and knowledge in our field, and advocate for socially-engaged, community and participatory arts, explaining why it is becoming more and more important in UK society and culture.

3. Producing socially-impactful projects.

We work freelance to plan, produce and execute creative projects working in co-production with community groups. We centre participants' experiences and voices to make sure they get the most out of projects. We use innovative activities through workshops and resources to encourage creativity and provoke discussion. We curate exhibitions filled with life and platform individual work. We evaluate our work and report on our findings.
