This event will allow you to meet and connect with industry leaders, discuss projects, ideas and network with like-minded folk. It’s a rare opportunity to chat to senior creatives directly, and a chance to get your foot in the door: industry mentors are often on the lookout for new minds to join their teams. Past masterclasses attendees have gained internships, positions and freelance work at companies such as Warner Music, Pentagram, M&C Saatchi and Google.
