Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Creative Careers Festival

On Friday 28 -Saturday 29 January mac will be hosting the Creative Careers Festival. Organised by Brightspace, the free festival for young people (13-18 year olds), teachers and parents will explore careers in the creative industries.

The festival will showcase a variety of creative careers and the routes into them. There will be workshops, demonstrations, seminars, panel discussions, mentoring and networking opportunities. I am very excited that I will be on the Young Creatives panel on the Friday. The panel aims to give the young people who are attending the festival the chance to talk to those who are already working in the creative industries (but close to their own age) about their routes into the industry and their aspirations for the future. It’s a difficult time for anyone to get their foot in the door, particularly at the moment, but I look forward to giving them advice. Come and say hello!
