Creative Careers


someone holds a phone, to take a picture perhaps?

We're going cross arts with a day-long event looking at the film, theatre, music and visual arts industries 

Barbican Creative Careers is teaming up with old pals ERIC FEST and Somerset House to bring young people, aged 14–25, a cornucopia of insight, conversation and learning across a day of workshops and sessions.

You can get hands on business skills, take part in interactive talks, immerse yourself in live tech demos or you can always take it easy and enjoy the live music, performances and food and drink on offer.

Speakers on the day include Alex Browning (Film Director), Becs Beslee (Head of people at Dice), Juanita Agboola (Founder at HFNE) and James Bishop (Founder at playbyplay).
