A celebration and exploration of routes into creative careers for young people in Cornwall

We will be working with local, regional and national creative industries and organizations, including Eden Project, National Lottery Heritage Fund and St Ives School of Painting. There will be College and University reps on-hand to answer all your questions and invited key speakers and artists will host talks and sessions throughout the day.

Alongside drop-in activities and stalls, the day will feature bookable hands-on workshops covering a range of topics from Digital techniques to Art Handling.

In partnership with University of Falmouth, Falmouth School of Art.


Clore Sky Studio: A range of stalls supported by local, regional and National organisations- ready to talk about experiences, share knowledge and info. Representatives from across Tate including, marketing, digital, membership, curatorial, learning and more will be on hand to answer any questions!

Foyle Studio: We will have 'in conversation' industry talks throughout the day featuring young artists, creative entrepreneurs and established figures in the Art world.

St Ives Studio: Opportunity for small group discussion and advice sessions. Topics will include Arts funding for personal projects, online and social media presence, applying for residencies and portfolio prep sessions.

De-stress area: Coping with choices, exams and deadlines is stressful and we want this day to be a positive and informative one! Join St Ives School of Painting for a drop in chilled activity anytime in the day.
