Every year we invite experienced industry professionals and creative practitioners from across the UK from TV, film, radio, publishing and gaming to share their experiences with students. The one-day event is taking place on Wednesday 1 March 2017 and we have a range of interactive workshops on offer to learn more about working in a creative environment. Each session is drop-in and first come, first served, but you need to register for the day. There are also workshops looking at self-employment in the creative industries, check out the Rise Up blog to find out more.
