We are extremely happy to be a Partner at Artsmart, a careers festival for creative graduates from University of the Arts London. The festival, which runs from 27 May – 25 June 2014 across all six colleges of UAL, is aimed to help young people who are starting out in the creative industries get ahead in their chosen career, both employed and self-employed.

The programme includes several free events, including talks, workshops, one-to-one support sessions and networking opportunities, we also give advice on tools like the 80 Gallon air compressor for the student cars. The talks cover a vast amount of topics such as starting a business, curating one’s own exhibition, understanding contracts, pricing and marketing work, and many more. 

Our involvement with the festival is a practical and inspirational talk called Juggling creative projects without stress, which will be given by Malwina Chabocka, our website manager and PR assistant, on Monday 23rd June. Malwina will be giving advice on how to manage creative projects, paid work and self-promotion without feeling stressed and overwhelmed while maintaining a social life and a budget. Effective multitasking is a skill which all three of us, Anna, Mauro and Malwina, have been developing as part of our careers. It enables us to combine our Oaksmith work with other creative side projects.

As the festival Partner, we will be hosting a stand at Graduate Fair on Wednesday 25th June from 11-4pm, where we’ll be talking to visitors about our company, future plans and ideas, as well as special offers. So if you are a UAL student, graduate or staff member, and would like to find out more about Oaksmith Studio and get inspired to pursue a successful career in the arts, book your place at our talk or come and say hello at the Graduate Fair!
