Creative Quarter 2018

On 23rd November South Kensington welcomed over a thousand students for one of our biggest events of the year – Creative Quarter. The event, for 13-19 year olds, included talks, demonstrations, drop-ins and workshops and aimed to educate and inspire children in creative careers.

Creative Quarter hosted many professionals from creative industries who engaged children in the details of their career. From a producer of immersive theatre to a sculptor, from a VR product design consultant to a midwife, children had the opportunity to learn about a wide range of careers. Sessions were held at the V&A, Imperial College London, Royal College of Music, Royal Albert Hall, Science Museum, Goethe-Institut, Design Museum and the Royal Society of Sculptors.
