MD Productions are excited to be holding the Blank Canvas year 2 Open Day at their new home in The Tapestry on Sunday 4th February.

Miguel Doforo, creative director of MD Productions, was inspired whilst performing at the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix 2016 to create a provision that would break down barriers, make change and allow people to access free performing arts and creativity classes. Blank Canvas is a community based project open to all ages that uses a creative journey to engage, inspire and increase confidence whilst building skills for stage, for work, for life – Supported by Florida Property Corner and Evolve Group.

After a very successful first year of running the project, participating in several community events across the Liverpool City Region, MD Productions accessed the opportunity to take a group of young people from the project over to perform at the place where the idea was born – the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix 2017, held at the Yas Marina Circuit. To continue the great success of the Blank Canvas project, this year MD Productions are thrilled to be expanding the project to become bigger and better by developing it into a community hub with external creative partners, as well as providing progression routes onto their MD Training Academy courses.

MD Productions Training Academy has recently partnered up with Sale Sharks to deliver a traineeship – Sharks Creative Academy. Offering an opportunity to work with Creative Industry experts in Masterclass sessions for Performing Arts, Performance Hair Styling, DJing, Make-Up, Events, Business and Enterprise and Film Production to get a real insight into the world of work in these industries and the career paths you can take, in addition to L1/L2 qualifications in Employability and Literacy and Numeracy. They have also linked with St Helens Council Ways to Work to deliver an exciting Engagement Course – Creatives Kick Starts. The short 6 week course has been specifically designed to support 16-18 year olds in the St Helen’s region who have an interest in the Creative Industry but perhaps aren’t sure how they can turn this interest into a career path. MD Training Academy delivers across several locations including Crosby, Rainford, Liverpool, St Helens and North Wales. For more information on MD Training Academy courses or locations please contact MD Productions on 07960 278 453 or

The Blank Canvas Open Day will take place on Sunday 4th February from 11-4pm at The Tapestry on Kempston Street, Liverpool.
