Our Trainee Project Manager Saad-Eddine Said is one of three aspiring artistic directors joining Battersea Arts Centre as part of the Up Next programme.

Saad finished his contract with us in August, and went straight to BAC to begin work there. He will work towards a Takeover season of work in 2019 along with his new colleagues Tarek and Lekan.

Up Next promises ‘No more hand holding, no more short-lived schemes, no more waiting for permission, no more waiting for a revolution. You’re Up Next: take the keys, take the budgets, take the space and change the game.’
