How can we work with the changing landscape to prepare early career creatives for the future ahead?

Working with Martin Bouette of the Werks group to explore mechanisms for supporting early career creatives. Through action research and ethnographic research to record and evaluate the process of supporting enterprise development and explore the viability of co-created, offsite and user directed support.

The aim of this research is to explore and challenge the existing support mechanisms in place for early career creatives and how the changing landscape has altered early career creatives approach to learning and development. We want to understand if the Covid 19 pandemic has created a change in the expectations of early career creatives in how they work and learn and if so, identify the best support practices to help them achieve these expectations.
