This Monday (16/01/2017), Kamina Walton, Rising Arts Agency Creative Director, was invited to UWE to present a seminar on ‘Making It in the Creative Sector’ as part of the ‘Creative Industries – Professional Practice’ Week.
It was a brilliant morning spent talking and listening to the talented students coming through the university’s arts departments. Kamina discussed how to get your foot in the door as a young artist while highlighting networking opportunities and key links, and sharing stories from emerging artists about what has worked for them.
“It was really helpful to learn about what qualities/skills we will need and how to meet people + find opportunities.”
“1. Great speaker!! 2. Amazing info. 3. Inspirational talk. 4. Love your programme. Love Rising! Good luck!”
“Inspiring, learnt a lot, I feel like you covered everything. THANKS :)”
It’s been inspiring to hear your career plans and goals – we look forward to hearing from you all in the future! Thank you to UWE for inviting us to give this seminar and workshop with your fantastic students!
