“Educating a New Creative Class”

[Instagram Feed Page] KEEP (but inactive)

We’re always busy at the Ideas Foundation, whether it’s with our own Projects, getting involved in supporting others in the creative industry, or working with Government. Whatever it takes to promote practical creativity. Take a look at what we’ve been up to recently, below.

"What do you want to be when you grow up?" Kim reveals what's most important about choosing a career - you don't have to stick to your choice! Turns out the answer can change as much as it did when you were a kid.

Your career path might not be straightforward, and that's okay. You'll gain experience from every role you're in, and this will help you work out what kind of job you really want to do. So don't worry if you don't know yet. There's always room for change 😊

Kath talks about the importance of curiosity and asking questions.

Choosing a career is daunting. It can feel as though you should know exactly what you want to do, but sometimes it takes some time to figure out. But a good place to start is by getting curious! Look into the different career options available. Ask people about their jobs and find out what they do on a daily basis. You won't know unless you ask!

And this is a skill that you can carry forward into your career. As Kath points out, in the creative industries asking questions is a way to challenge each other and challenge the boundaries of what we do!

Rebecca tells us about the digital skills she developed when she started working and how this helped broaden her horizons.

We often talk about the skills you need for your career - but what about the skills you don't need? You'll pick up a lot of new things throughout your career, as you start to discover the skills you need to progress. So don't worry if you don't know it all - there's time to learn, even on the job!

University? Who is she?

Cathryn shares how she got into the creative industries with a PR apprenticeship.

Degrees are becoming less of a necessity in the creative industries, with apprenticeships and traineeships increasing in popularity since they offer practical experience alongside study. If you're deciding what to do after school, consider what will offer you the experiences and skills you're looking for.

Some of the amazing work from @thegacademy students at today’s workshop, working under tight deadlines in response to a brief from @officialdisruptspace

The students created social media graphics to advertise the company and the artists, with some excellent guidance from @edgegainltd @lydiathornley and Nathan Dua.

Our mentors and partners shared their tools of the trade, from creating digital content and selecting brand images to essentials such as naming and transferring files.

Special thanks go to @peterbakare for hosting the day! We’ll see you tomorrow for Day 2 of the workshop where we’ll be joined by @octagonstudio and @weareonepointfive ✨

We’re going Global! 🌍 Over the next two days, Ideas Foundation will be hosting a virtual workshop for @thegacademy Year 12 students!

Back in October we hosted our first industry day, where the students were tasked with photographing, filming and interviewing six artists from @officialdisruptspace

This time round, the students will be using the digital storytelling content they captured in October to respond to the brief: to create social media content that will advertise the brand and its artists. Follow along on our stories 🎨 #BlackArtsDisrupt
