Are you an 18–25 year old creative entrepreneur, arts activist, emerging artist, or someone who wants to learn more about yourself and the creative industries? Then Compulsory Subjects is for you.

Compulsory Subjects is a week-long programme, where you will have the chance to meet and hear from some of the leading figures and organisations from UK arts & culture. Over the course of the week, you will build your understanding of how to develop your own practice, expand your network, and learn how to pave your own path to create more opportunities.

From tax and contract law to branding and management, this is your chance to meet and learn from Oscar winners and heads of industry; filling in the gaps the traditional education system has missed.

Only 20 spaces available – so sign up now!

The programme will take place from Mon 1 – Fri 5 Aug 2022 (approximately 10am – 7pm) and you must be available for all dates and times. It is free to join the programme and we will provide travel and food expenses for all participants.

Apply by DM-ing @hefutures or emailing a 60 second clip telling us who you are, what you do and why you want to be a part of the next cohort of Compulsory Subjects.
