‘Knowledge by the experts, creativity by you’; that’s the tagline for Creative Careers, our new initiative for young photographers, musicians, actors, producers – whatever your creative talent – ready to get started in the creative industry.
Through monthly sessions, participants get the opportunity to meet artists and learn from the experts what it takes to get a job in the creative industries and make a living as an artist.
For example, setting up an online music channel and curating live events like Just Jam’s Tim & Barry. Working with the cutting edge talents of the underground Bass, House and Grime scene, Tim & Barry curate events that pair performances with psychedelic visuals manipulated and remixed in Just Jam’s chaotic signature style. And in a recent Creative Careers session, Tim & Barry shared that signature style with our Creative Careers participants, producing a youth takeover of a Just Jam event at Broadway Theatre in front of a live audience.
Through a series of training workshops with professional artists 15 young creatives developed the skills that were needed to learn Just Jam’s unique style and delivered a live AfroBeats event at Broadway Theatre in June 2016.
These videos are a result of all their hard work.
