Creative Careers Expo

Thursday 16 August | 9.30am – 3pm

High school students in years 10 – 12 are invited to an all-embracing creative careers expo at Campbelltown Arts Centre. The event includes drop-in stalls for students to chat with tertiary institutions and services for young people interested in studying and working in the arts and creative industries, alongside inspirational artist talks and panel discussions throughout the day.

Our star-studded program includes motivational artist presentations from hip hop artist L-Fresh the Lion as well as actor, producer, writer Candy Bowers, alongside information stalls with representatives from Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), University of Wollongong, JMC Academy, Western Sydney University, NAISDA Dance College, TAFE NSW, the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Sydney College of the Arts from the University of Sydney, ACMUSE, AIME (Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience) – and more to be announced.

The expo is designed with casual drop-in options.

Stalls will be open 11 – 3pm, for students to speak individually with tertiary institutions and services. Students are welcome to join morning and/or afternoon talks, visiting stall-holders either side as well as opportunities to register for ‘speed meets’ with their favourite artist(s).
