Students from Witchford Village College took part in a Cultural Tester day at Anglia Ruskin University where they had the opportunity to listen to, work with and have hands on experience from individuals involved in different creative industries.
This ranged from “Life as a freelance Fashion Photographer”; Graphic Design and photoshop workshops; discovering what careers are linked to a working Theatre and experiencing a recording studio with a Grammy-award winning Mix Engineer.
Students also visited the internationally recognised Music and Drama Therapy Centre to learn about careers in this area.
This type of experience really showcases creative careers and gave students a great opportunity at the University to also get an idea of what Uni life is like.
At the end of the day students reflected on the many areas of ARU they had visited, including taking photos of work displayed in the exhibition space, and that it had given them a real insight into creative careers and how many different options there were in the industry.
