Creative Careers

The Art behind the Arts

people being creative

Join us for a Creative Careers session which looks at the work that goes on behind the scenes of every concert, exhibition and performance across the arts.

Considering a career in the arts can sometimes feel difficult to picture. It’s so often the end product that our institutions are celebrated for, rather than how that work is facilitated by teams of people behind the scenes. This April, Creative Careers shines a light on the huge amounts of creativity and commitment that go into every concert, exhibition and performance across the arts. 

The evening of talks and panel discussion is ideal for anyone looking to get into the arts industry with an aim to facilitate ground breaking experiences. We’ll be joined by key producers, administrators and strategists who will be sharing their experiences of building a project from the ground up.
