To mark the start of the National Careers Week 2020, Babylon ARTS’s has launched the Culture Catalogue: an online hub of cultural enrichment and creative careers opportunities, for young people, available in Cambridgeshire.
The Culture Catalogue will be an essential tool for young people looking for a career in a creative industry, available on the Babylon ARTS’ website.
Head of Project Delivery, Florence Rose said “Creativity can take many forms and is highly prized in many different industries and professions, as it leads to innovation and new ways of solving problems” says Florence. “Yet finding advice and opportunities in creative sectors can often be a challenge. We want to bridge that gap that is so often the case for young people.
The Culture Catalogue is a great tool for students and teachers to find experiences in the arts, culture and heritage, but also for organisations and industries seeking to recruit creative people by providing opportunities for pathways into creative careers.”
These creative opportunities are designed to improve young people’s transferable skills as well as boost confidence. Digital Badges are provided for each skill in line with The Universal Skills Builder Framework; which includes problem solving, leadership and presenting skills. The Creative & Cultural Futures programme is being piloted during 2019/20 academic year with primary and secondary schools and students living and learning in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire.
Current examples on the Culture Catalogue include workshops and talks by Ely’s The Stained Glass Museum, University of Cambridge Museums and Eastern Angles, and training days as well as creative careers evenings by Cambridge Junction.
