The University of Ulster has teamed up with the Workers' Educational Association to offer free taster sessions to anyone aged sixteen and over who is interested in working in the Creative Industries.

The two Jordanstown sessions are part of a bigger project called 'Creativity Thirst' which is made possible by the Creative Industries Innovation Fund, supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure.

Kerry Patterson, Business Liaison Executive in the Office of Innovation at Jordanstown said: “The University of Ulster is currently supporting the Jordanstown programme which was a great success when it was piloted in Belfast and Portstewart. We are delighted that Ulster's Professor Greg Maguire (picture) will be bringing his expertise to the taster sessions”

The sessions will be presented by professionals who work both locally and internationally in the Creative Industries.  These role models will explain their work and tell the audience of their experiences to date.

Sessions will look at a range of creative industries including a variety of aspects in the Fashion Industry and digital media, with an emphasis on some of the entrepreneurial skills necessary to make an income in these areas.

Both sessions will take place in the Jordanstown Campus in room 4F03 and will feature the work of Cathy Martin from Belfast Fashion Week on the 24th November at 7.30pm and digital expert and University of Ulster Professor Greg Maguire on 6th December, 7.30pm.
