Alongside interviews, the podcast will feature music from producer and multi-instrumentalist J-Felix whose eclectic blend of boogie, p-funk, disco and soul has seen him take to the stage as the support act for Hot 8 Brass Band as well as perform a DJ set at Glastonbury.
For the past two years Lookout has worked with young people aged nine to eighteen offering mentoring with professional artists, workplace visits, creative industry-led workshops in schools and creative collaborations between artists of all ages.
The new podcast
will be available via major platforms
so young people anywhere
will be able to tune in and hear about careers they might not otherwise have considered.
Recognising the boundaries
which can prevent young people from choosing the creative industries including financial and social barriers as well as a lack of careers advice and guidance, Lookout: Creative Careers Podcast
is the latest strive to open up access to creative opportunities, highlight transferable skills and provide
support and encouragement along the way.
The series has been made and presented by Ben Lintott, a 19-year-old from Brighton, who was a Lookout mentee last year:
"Working on the Lookout podcast has helped me develop my skillset in a medium which I had littleto-no experience in beforehand.
"I am immensely proud of how the podcast has turned out and thankful to all those who gave their time, guidance and/or resources to it."
The podcasts are available on all major podcast platforms. CLICK HERE for more info.
