A new online cultural careers initiative for secondary schools across NI, brought to you by Young at Art.

Young at Art is pleased to present our new initiative aimed at Post-Primary pupils from Year 10 and above: Creative Pathways.

Pre-Covid the creative industries contributed almost £13 million to the UK economy every hour, generating more than £100 billion each year and employing more than two million people. This is more than the UK agricultural industries!

This vibrant sector presents lots of career opportunities, but how do you actually get started?

We’ve asked some top professionals in their field to talk about their own Creative Pathways into the creative economy and discuss what they think the future will hold for the sector.

These four sessions are designed for Year 10 pupils and above, are free to participate in and last no longer than 60mins each. Our creative professionals will be ‘in conversation’ with another professional in their field, so audiences will get a chance to hear about different pathways to similar careers and ask questions directly to the professionals.

It is anticipated that these sessions will take place during weeks commencing 17 and 24 May 2021, but each session is only open to two schools. It’s a strictly ‘first come first served’ arrangement and sessions will be scheduled accordingly.
