Creative and Digital Futures Fest

Event providers: University of Bolton

Creative and Digital Futures Fest will support students from across Greater Manchester to investigate careers in one of the UK’s fastest growing sectors.

Hosted by Curious Minds, Arts Council England’s Bridge organisation for the North West, this online interactive event aims to inspire and inform students about the range of job opportunities available in the creative and digital sectors.

Across the week, creative and digital employers will host online interactive workshops to showcase careers in just some of the many different areas within their industries.  Students will hear from emerging creative professionals who have successfully taken their first step on the ladder and learn about their journey so far. By the end of the week students will have better knowledge and understanding of HE pathways into creative and digital careers after having engaged meaningfully with employers from the sector.
