"Don't spend a lifetime running away from what you're good at" was the message from artist Glen Saberton from Rocksteady Studios as he addressed primary schoolchildren from inner city schools in Camden yesterday as part of a new careers initiative backed by Camden council.
The art of making computer games, Shakespeare through rap, surgery with Professor Kneebone, a former Great British Bake Off contestant’s human rights campaign and a young teenager’s incredible trek to the South Pole were among the hot topics at this year’s Camden Primary Careers Conference.
Two hundred primary school pupils attended the ground-breaking event for children aged 9 to 11 at the British Library on 23 March to listen to dynamic speakers and take part in hands-on workshops about jobs and careers.
High-profile organisations at the event include the Natural History Museum, the Francis Crick Institute for Medical Research, the Roundhouse, ZSL London Zoo, the Metropolitan Police, Young Enterprise, Little Architect and Ukie member Rocksteady.
