Creative Industries Festival



An event designed to bridge the gap between education and the UK’s most rapidly growing sector - the creative industries. During this one day event we invited local practitioners to present information about their job and their unique career pathway in an attempt to better inform young people of the opportunities and career possibilities.

100 tickets. S2 - S4 pupils.

The ticketed event was open to 100 pupils in S2 - S4 and was geared towards those with an interest within the creative arts. Pupils were required to complete a survey prior to the even to obtain a ticket. By collecting this information we were able to tailor the workshops and brief the speakers with information that would maximise the impact for this specific group.
