Are you interested in pursuing a career in the arts and creative industry? As a student or recent graduate in the arts, you may be looking for guidance, advice or mentorship from those who have succeeded in your field. Join us on campus on Friday, January 17 to learn from several McMaster alumni who have established careers in arts administration, fine arts, theatre, music and more. They’re all very excited to come back to campus and speak with students and young alumni about working in the arts.
Registration is free and you can choose to attend the full day or individual sessions. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Erin at email@example.com.
