So, You Want to Work in the Arts?

High school and university students (and their families) are invited to save-the-date for Creative Careers Days, the UAE’s first, annual festival devoted to exploring your future in the arts.

Creative Careers Days is a free, in-person event designed to inspire and provide insights for young people into the broad range of exciting opportunities in the (fast-growing) cultural and creative sector. The programme includes meet-and-greet with leading arts organisations and universities; behind-the-scenes tours of the museum, highlighting the full range of creative career options ahead; practical talks and workshops led by established artists and industry leaders, sharing their own professional paths and life lessons; and information on career-enhancing residencies, internship and volunteer opportunities.

Join us to explore the UAE’s cultural ecosystem, meet fellow young creatives, and gain insight into and practical advice on how to make it in the arts!

Day 1, on Sunday October 23, is aimed primarily at young people and their families; on Day 2, Monday 24, we invite UAE-based schools, colleges and universities to bring groups of arts-oriented students (aged 14-24).

Visiting schools, colleges and universities, need to click here to confirm their initial interest in joining. After receiving your confirmation, we will be in touch to share further details and schedule the visit time ahead of the day.
