Creative Careers

Hear from the musicians

lots of lights and music and people having a lot of fun

Musicians share their experiences in the music industry with a frank look at how their career can help you with yours

Creative Careers is taking a look at the music industry this month and is inviting a panel of music makers to share what inspires and informs their art.  We’ll uncover the hidden gems that can make or break your career, how to start your projects and how to get stuff moving. 

From founding a festival or managing a choir to simply believing in yourself and taking the first step, all will be covered in the session that we hope leaves you feeling inspired and informed. 

And as always, dinner is on us.
