We’re excited to announce ‘EXPAND’ - an exclusive 4 part panelist series with industry experts over the next few weeks! The first in the series... EXPAND: Your Career In Illustration

Sign up for our exclusive series of panels where industry experts will share their insights on each of these topics - and more! We’ll moderate the panel and ask for all your questions beforehand so we can get real discussions and answers from women who’ve broken into the industry. Our series will consist of 4 events spanning one month, covering Illustration and animation, Advertising, Graphic Design and Digital Design.

Our first panel event will be on Illustration and Animation on 27th October at 7pm GMT. We'll be talking setting up your own business, a career in teaching and standing out from the crowd - plus much more.

This remote event will be hosted on Zoom, and we'll send a link out on the day of the event.
We can’t wait to see you all soon!
