Navigating careers in the creative industries can be daunting. Creative students currently at school or uni will need more than a tertiary qualification to survive the rapidly evolving creative industries environment. It’s all about connections, collaborations and entrepreneurship.
Join us for the Creative Careers Day: an interactive exploration where students can connect directly with industry and get practical advice and tips to better understand how to survive as ‘new creatives’. 
Seminars will explore topics such as how do today’s creatives survive and thrive? Industry experts will share information about where jobs are, what soft and hard skills are needed, study and work pathways, portfolio creation, and tips and tricks on how to connect, collaborate and get ahead.
Attend sessions for Design and Visual Arts, Production, Digital Media and STEM, Marketing and Communications, Performance and Entrepreneurship.
Meet industry face-to-face by borrowing someone from our Human Library. Ask about their pathways, discover tips and tricks and find out what they want from their employees.
Get involved in workshops in digital design, fabric printing, dance master classes, Adobe and Intel demos.
Immerse yourself in experiences such as interactive art installations, the science of creativity performance, video and student gallery.
Visit our pop-up Art Market of emerging and established artists and designers, where you can buy and sell art, design, fashion, jewellery and more.

This event is presented by Bradfield Senior College.
