Hi Careers Eventer!
Welcome to WAcreative. We just wanted to give you a bit more info about what we do and who's involved.
we're a free group based in Warrington setup to develop the creative
industries in and around the town and to connect people. If you're
interested in working in the creative space, chances are you'll need
contacts and experience. This is a good opportunity to find both.
You can use this group in whatever way works for you
you're just looking to keep on top of industry news and develop
contacts, you're very welcome to come along. If you'd like to use the
group as an opportunity to showcase (or practice showcasing) your work,
you can do. If you'd rather just use the discussion boards to ask
questions, go for it.
On a personal
note, as a meetup user, I know what it's like going down to one of these
things for the first time. WAcreative is about as informal as you can
possibly get - so don't worry about not knowing anyone, or that it might
not be for you... come along and say hi. It's a very informal bunch
that attends and we also like to get sponsorship, so we try to put on a
couple of free drinks too.
It's tough to get a
break in the creative industries. We've been there and experienced it.
Events like this show that you're doing more than just your course,
you're engaging with industry. And, like most industries, it's always
good to have contacts. Even better when they're more closely formed and
formed during an informal event like this.
For more, follow us @wa_creative or if you've got any questions, want to get involved etc, just use the group to get in touch.
