    Why we should give a feather and a fig...

    Students, we want to help, we want to pass on the invaluable things that have taken years of toil and mistakes. We are creatives just like you. We share the same passions, the same goals, the same DNA - CREATIVITY.
    Professionals, if you've survived in the creative sector you've done well. If you've made any money then you're very lucky (good job we don't do it for the money). However, if you're still driven to create and enjoy what you do you've succeeded where many have failed. And although you may not think it you have acquired invaluable skills that have made this happen.
    It could be a way of working, technique or just your attitude to what you do, whatever it is it's what makes you creative and successful.
    So what if someone had told you about the things that have helped you survive when you started. The nuggets of information, the tips, the little things that can turn good work into great work and of course the pitfalls.
    Would it have made a difference? (would you have carried on?).
    There are lots of people working in the creative industry. Some become well known others don't, it doesn't really matter, what matters is that all of them are changing the world in some way. And regardless of the disrespect that creativity gets and the cuts in creative education, creatives are still here and their presence is vital to human evolution.
    So we must ensure that creativity thrives and that talent flourishes.
    Creatives need to help each other.
    We must pass on what we know and encourage and nurture future talent.

    If you work in the creative sector and you give a feather or a fig, join us because so do we.

    Appraisium is a way to connect with professionals of your choice and ask for feedback on your work.

    Unlike all other platforms where work is displayed and anybody can comment, Appraisium allows the student to choose who they want feedback from. They can choose someone whose work they admire and whose advice will mean something.

    The benefits
    • Feedback and advice from people actually doing what they want to do
    • Develop the skills to communicate a brief, ideas and reasoning
    • Learn how to interpret feedback
    • Connect with professionals anywhere in the country or even the world

    • Share experience and knowledge with people who are passionate about the same things they are (“Giving back” )
    • Seeing great work from fresh and vibrant talent
    • Finding talent

    • Connect courses and students with industry
    • Encourage and help with professional practice
    • Access years of experience and knowledge simply and easily
