Prizes for participants at next weeks’ THIS IS IT!

Excitement is mounting as the next THIS IS IT! creative careers event is under a week away. The day, hosted in collaboration with the West of England Enterprise Partnership at The Engine Shed in Bristol, has a stellar line up of speakers on board. Sarah Cox, an award-winning animator and producer who has worked with the likes of Tate and Aardman Animations and Mike Smith, President of Music at Virgin EMI Records will both be sharing their career experiences. Poet Sabrina Mahfouz will be sharing her own path into the creative industry, and working some of her characteristic spoken word into her performance – see some of her latest work here to get a taste.

Interactive workshops and sessions will run on creative entrepreneurship, freelancing and setting up your own business, priming  participants for their next move in the creative industries. Briefs set by The Creative Society will allow participants to get their creative juices flowing, with prizes for the best ideas. These include advertising guru John Hegarty’s new book On Creativity, and Sabrina Mahfouz’s new collection of plays and poems The Clean Collection and theatre tours of Bristol’s Hippodrome. T-shirts from Bristol clothes brand Shop Dutty have also been donated, so two lucky participants will be leaving in style. Social media savvy participants will be rewarded too, with 2 tickets to the exhibition Wallace and Gromit From the Drawing Board starting May 24 at Bristol’s MShed for the best tweets and posts on the day.
