Creative Arts

Creative Arts Event

For our Creative Arts Event, the plan is for employers to deliver a series of talks to groups of students, studying Performing Arts, Visual Arts, English, and Music.

The focus of this event is as follows: Creative arts are one of the most fulfilling pursuits in life. They provide an avenue for self-expression, creative fulfilment, and enjoyment. It also happens to be one of the UK’s fastest growing industries.

Art is an expansive field comprised of many sub-categories, each with its own unique demands and opportunities. Some artists are better suited to traditional fine art methods while others thrive in digital or graphic arts; some find fulfilment as teachers, educators, curators, writers, producers; others prefer careers primarily behind the scenes in administrative positions. We want to help emerging artists hone the tools they need to get started or advance in their creative careers.
