Entering the profession in the creative industries is a complex and challenging process for young designers leaving training or education. The Young Designers Forum will discuss the challenges and opportunities inherent in this process, and wishes to explore ways and methods of helping to ease this journey, and of making it as safe and rewarding as possible. We will discuss the dreams and aspirations of young people setting out to become designers for live performance, and the expectations and challenges set by their potential employers and collaborators.
The panel consists of representatives from across the theatre industry: Professional Designers, Educators, Producers, Artistic Directors and Graduates will discuss what it means to be a Young Designer.
