Dalston Open Studios , November 15th – 19th 4-5pm

This November Bootstrap will be running a week-long ‘Open Studios’ event – a series of seminars aimed at opening the doors of the Creative Industries to young people in Hackney.

Are you interested in sharing your skills and experience of work within the Creative Industries with young people? If so, we’d really like you to get involved with Dalston Open Studios – and will also be able to pay you for your time. The key areas we are focusing on will be; Film and Visual Arts, Music /Audio, Design and Fine Art/Photography.

Local young people in their final years of education (aged 16-18) will be invited to attend Dalston Open Studios and explore alternative jobs and routes to employment – they will also be able to gain a real insight into what careers in the Creative Industries are like and meet inspiring professionals.

We want to introduce students to successful, hard-working individuals and businesses in Hackney. In doing this, we hope to create a network between local young people and the Creative Industries. We also aim to inspire innovation, creativity and enterprise in young people and encourage them to see the value in their own work, ideas and creations.
