Partnered with the GoThinkBig project, Rodgers and Rudimental are opening up close to 100 different jobs for people between the ages of 16 and 24. The work experience program has roles covering everything from sound engineering to photography. Those involved will help write and produce a new remix of the track, followed by a music video, and ultimately, give a performance of the song live at a secret show later in the year.
Nile Rodgers knows unemployment sucks. That’s one of the many reasons why he’s teamed up with Rudimental to give up-and-coming industry hopefuls the chance to get their foot in the door and gain some valuable hands-on experience.
There is still a large number of young people unemployed or out of education and feeling disconnected from society. I know the feeling of rejection from when I started out. I want to change that feeling.
If you’re interested in getting involved, you’ve got until Sept. 8 to apply. To sign up, or to get more information about the project, check out GoThinkBig’s website here.
