Provided by DYW Dundee and Angus
DYW Dundee & Angus and Creative Dundee are hosting a Pecha Kucha style Teach Meet for Creative Industries. Tuesday 30th October. This event will enable teachers, lectures and senior pupils to hear first-hand from creative industries professionals about the opportunities and pathways that exist for young people who are interested in a creative career. Five professionals based in the Dundee area with creative careers will speak about their own journeys or current work. There will then be an opportunity for networking after. This is an incredible opportunity that will give you the knowledge and stories of personal experiences to fully support all the young people you engage with, whether this is to help them with course choices, university decisions or apprenticeship and job applications.
