Creative Journeys Birmingham: Meet The Professionals

Event Manager

This is an event that I produced for Creative Alliance.

Creative Journeys was a free event held at ThinkTank on 14th March for young people and teachers featuring workshops, a marketplace and creative challenges giving young people a chance to explore and unravel information about careers in the creative and cultural sector.

With four main subject areas to choose from- Art&Design, Performance, Digital and Music, they got the lowdown about the sector from people who are currently in the industry; running their own businesses and with freelance careers in the sector. Organisations involved in the workshops were: Ikon, Craftspace, Birmingham Museums Trust, BeatFreeks, The Rep, Profile Media Network, DanceXchange, The Drum, Substrakt, Bareface, Trilby , Class Creative, Punch Records,  and Birmingham Hippodrome.
