Our London-based Creative Employment Programme participants descended on Somerset House earlier this month for an ideas session to help develop our THIS IS IT! scheme. Fuelled by croissants and coffee, the interns and apprentices gave their thoughts on a CEP alumni scheme, which is currently in development by The Creative Society team. The scheme will give programme participants past and present a chance to share experiences, advice and opportunities, and help support the scheme’s upcoming generations.
The morning was hosted by making and learning space Makerversity, and saw resident start-up Kide host a session on 3D printing after the morning’s discussion. The talented bunch responded to a creative brief to build a new bridge London, modelling their designs using CAD software before being 3D printed in resin – see Katie Collins’ article for Wired on Makerversity’s ‘classroom of the future’ to see them in action.
The THIS IS IT! alumni scheme will launch in the coming months – keep an eye on the THIS IS IT! project page for the latest.
