If you’re 18 – 30 years old, living in Wales and looking to get ahead in the creative and cultural industries, Buzz Culture is for you. Over an 8 week period you will have the opportunity to get the latest upgrades on the skills you need, meet new creatives and build new networks. You’ll also get to work on a new and original live brief, then publish and promote your work to international audiences. All this through a FREE non formal and flexible learning experience.
When does the Spring term run?
The spring term starts after the Easter holidays on the week beginning Monday the 25th of April 2022, and will continue for 8 consecutive weeks until Tuesday the 14th of June 2022.
How much time will I need to commit?
Skills sessions are every Tuesday evenings for 2 hours between 6pm and 8pm for the duration of the programme. You will also meet with your mentor for 1 hour every week. When it comes to working on your live brief, you will need to be flexible as this is the nature of the industry.
How do I access the Skills Sessions?
All skills sessions will be delivered remotely via video conferencing.
How do I meet my mentor?
We will pair you with a mentor at the start of the programme. From there on, you can organise when and how you meet between you. This will be remotely via phone or video call until further notice.
I’m already studying/working. Can I still apply?
Currently, yes. Buzz Culture is classed as non formal continued professional development and it’s intended to be additional support to those that are seeking to improve their workplace and employability skills.
If I apply, am I guaranteed a place?
No – the programme is very popular and we have limited spaces.
What will the live briefs be?
Live briefs are real life projects that we and our partners are currently working on so it depends what we’re doing at the time.
Can I sign up and just participate in the Live Briefs or mentoring?
Skills sessions are compulsory but the mentoring and live briefs are optional. If you do not attend the weekly skills sessions, you will lose access to your mentor and not be able to participate in any live briefs.
