Shaping the Direction Together

Creative Careers

Two women in emphatic conversation

Creative Careers is coming back! Join us for an evening of conversation and discussion about the future of the Creative Careers Programme. 

Over the last few months, we’ve been working with a team of young researchers to set some priorities for the future of the Creative Careers programme. Across this evening you will hear directly from these researchers about their findings and you will also be invited to share your feedback. 

We want to make sure that you have the opportunity to help shape the future of this work, making it as useful and as relevant as possible for you all. Please don’t miss this opportunity to come and feed into what comes next for Creative Careers. 

Also on the night, we’ll have some brilliantly selected tunes from our host Vanessa Maria, some forward-thinking work from the Young Barbican network will be exhibited, and pizza and drinks for everyone!

On the dancefloor, Vanessa showcases sounds from around the world, infusing high-energy Baile Funk rhythms with everything from Jersey Club to Hard Drum. Renowned for her genre-spanning mixes and high-energy 130bpm sets, you’ll need stamina to keep up. She’s been busy making appearances at Boilerroom, Dazed Magazine, Warehouse Project and HÖR in Berlin. Vanessa’s work in and around music and mental health has also not gone unnoticed, from launching a radio show for Black Butter Records to interviewing the likes of Jaguar, Tiffany Calver and Juls.
