We’re looking for alumni volunteers to contribute to a series of online events throughout 2021 to help support students and recent graduates navigate their next steps. Each of our ‘Getting into…’ talks will be themed around a course taught at UAL. As part of a small panel, you’ll share highs, lows and top tips on how to get into your sector.
We’re really interested to hear about your journey to what you’re doing now; you might work in PR and Communications having studied Photography, be working as an Art Teacher having studied Spatial Design, or be working in a completely different sector utilising your creative energy!
The events will take place throughout 2021, and will be based around the following themes:
- Fine Art
- Visual communication (e.g. graphics, illustration, communication, advertising, branding)
- Animation, interactive, film and games
- Theatre, screen and performance
- Teaching and arts education
- Product, industrial, 3D and materials
- Journalism, PR and marketing
- Fashion, textiles and accessories
- Architecture, interior and spatial
If you studied on any of the above courses at UAL, and are interested in being involved in a panel discussion about your career since then please do get in touch. We’re particularly keen to hear from anyone who’s working ‘in-house’ and those who are working in non-creative industries.
What it involves from you:
Speakers usually have at least 3 years’ experience and the average time commitment is around 5 hours, including pre-and-post event preparation. Once you’ve registered your interest we’ll let you know when an opportunity comes up. If you think you can inspire UAL’s network then get in touch!
