Aspiring creative professionals are set to get a helping hand with setting up a business and working in the industry thanks to a free creative community convention hosted by Blackpool and The Fylde College.
The Creative Perspective Convention at the University Centre takes place over three days between Tuesday 22nd and Thursday 24th of January. It will feature keynote speakers, specialist portfolio workshops, business start-up advice, support agencies, creative apprenticeships and networking opportunities throughout the series of seminars.
The event will cover all aspects of the creative industries from setting up a creative business, ensuring copyright and the positive exploitation of intellectual property, access to funding, community impact and provide a range of opportunities to meet creative professionals and entrepreneurs.
Colin Appleby, curriculum leader for Employer Liaison and Apprenticeships at the School of Creative Arts said:
The Creative Perspective event is open to our own and other students within further and higher education as well as the wider creative community, whether already practising or in business or with the aspirations to establish themselves as a working creative.
I believe that this event is the first of its kind across the Fylde Coast and came about as a result of the shared aspirations of the School of Creative Arts at Blackpool and The Fylde College to inspire and bring together the professional creative community. The event promises to be very exciting and informative and, we hope, the first of many such future events.
As part of the creative convention Blackpool and The Fylde College will be launching their own record label at Uncle Tom’s Cabin on the evening of the 24 January.
Events will be taking place on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th January. Places are free but limited. For a full list of seminars and sessions, visit www.blackpool.ac.uk/sca/
