Purpose and Benefits:
Creative Networks is Leeds College of Art's major external engage event. The event brings in industry to mix with students and staff as a way to develop connections and also to demonstrate the quality of students work found at Leeds College of Art. Looking forward new ideas will be introduced in ways to develop stronger ties with industry guests attending as a way to benefit students. It is an exciting time to be involved with this series of events and develop some great work for your portfolio and get it seen by guest speakers and a range of industry professionals.
Staff and students at Leeds College of Art are aware of the events. Our main objective is to bring in professionals from the creative industries. Each guest speaker will appeal to different types of industry and so the work will have to adjust to these needs. A large majority come from Leeds with some who attend repeatedly, but the events are welcome to all from Yorkshire and surrounded cities. The main channels of promotion are print (posters) for within the College and around Leeds, social media and email campaigns are used to contact everyone about the events.
Creative Networks has been running for a couple of years now and has gone from strength to strength. Creative Networks is our own major professional events programme, and the largest network of its type in the region. It's a fantastic chance to mix with people from industry and to hear fascinating talks from leading speakers in a relaxed environment. Students, former students and staff at Leeds College of Art are all welcome to attend. For a list of previous speakers please look on the Leeds College of Art website under Creative Networks - http://bit.ly/2bT1tDc
Leeds College of Art logo and Creative Networks branding must be on all material. A link to the Eventbrite page where tickets can be bought will also be needed.
