We've teamed up with Stripes, This Ability, People of Creativity and All Here to create an event for the next generation of creatives and future leaders in the field. If you're between the age of 18-24 from a BAME background and interested in how the creative and advertising industry works then this is an event not to be missed. We have a panel of industry experts who will share with you their story and how they have managed to create a successful career in the creative sphere. We will also have a host of industry professionals on hand to give you personal career advice, CV review and much, much more! And here's the kicker it's completely FREE!
‘Changing The Narrative’ is aimed at young people, undergraduates and recent graduates from a wide variety of studies/backgrounds who have an interest in pursuing a career in the creative industry.
Interactive, engaging, and informal, the event demonstrates how to access the creative industries and the value of a career in creative industry for young BAME talent.
The event is broken down into 3 interactive sessions:
Our panel will consist of young BAME creative professionals who will introduce themselves, what they do and how they got there. Students can then kick off a Q&A with the panel.
Attendees will be broken out into smaller groups of 8-10 people; each group will be led by a senior creative professional. This will provide detailed insight into core roles within the creative industry. Student groups will circulate around the room in a “speed dating” style rotation to be exposed to lots of different roles and options.
An opportunity for attendees to have their CV/Portfolio reviewed by an industry professional or simply expand their network within the creative industry.
The professionals on hand will represent various backgrounds such as: Film & Photography, Social Media, Visual (Graphic) Design, Client Services, PR, UI & UX Design, Strategy, Project Management, Creative Technology, Marketing Data and Analytics, Journalism and Copywriting, Art Direction
‘Changing The Narrative’ event provides the perfect opportunity to gain access to professionals who will supply them with the answers to all of their related enquiries.
Attendees will be able to get expert advice, insights and coaching from creative professionals to make their dreams a reality.
This event is brought to you by STROBE: a series of events focusing on celebrating creators, innovators and inventors from BAME community.
‘Changing The Narrative’ not only recognises BAME contribution, but reaches out to young people about to start their careers.
