Future Talent at SohoCreate 2016

A careers fair, workshops on creative tech and advice on how to become a DIY creative

From June 6, some of the world’s leading creative minds will come together at the SohoCreate festival. The varied five day programme has something for creatives from all different stages in their careers.

A two-day Future Talent caters particularly to new graduates and those just starting out. On June 6 and 7 Soho Square will provide the backdrop for a Creative Careers Fair with companies such as Microsoft’s Lift London, The Mill, Picturehouse Central and Film London scheduled to talk about what it means to work with them. The career’s fair, sponsored by Lift London is a chance to network with some of the city’s top recruiters and build your network.

On June 7, learn all about how to be a DIY creative – the challenges of starting up, how to follow a project brief, how to use social media to future a creative career and more.
