Professional Development for Designers and Creatives: Peer Learning Session
November 5, 2014 @ 7:45 am - 8:45 am
Being a designer or creative in regional WA can be a great lifestyle and also a challenge to sustain yourself, find your niche, compete against local and Perth-based designers and stay ahead of the game. There are also many ways to use your skills for profitably and purposefully, whether it be freelancing, working with a select number of large clients, or creating beautiful products (or buildings!) that people love. Creative professionals also make a disproportionally large contribution to the look, feel and character of regional communities and cities.
This Peer Learning Session focuses on the professional, career and business development opportunities for creatives and graphic designers.
Attend if you are involved in graphic design, marketing, branding, interior design or similar industries and want to learn with and from and with other members about these sorts of opportunities.
This conversation may cover everything from the best e-learning platforms for maintaining your skills, guest speakers or professional development opportunities we can create, or sharing each other’s latest creations or cooperation on increasing the profile and size of the local creative industries.
There is a discussion thread in our member’s area for conversation pre- and post-session: https://pollinators.org.au/groups/funding-support/forum/topic/designers-and-creative/
