4Talent Day – Channel 4 come to Derry
When: 30th May 2012
Where: The Nerve Centre
Time: 9.30 – 4.30
Ages: 16 – 24
Why are we doing this?
We want to build upon Channel 4’s commitment to engaging and developing the widest diversity of talent, from all around the UK.
To do this we have our 4Talent Days, where young people can get involved in creative workshop lead by industry experts and get advice from both Channel 4 staff and local creative industries.
Aspiration and inspiration is key – for young people aged 16-25 from all backgrounds to recognise the contribution they can make. We seek to signpost, demystify and break down barriers to allow young people to engage in one of the most exciting, ground-breaking and vibrant sectors in the UK economy.
We have designed a day of engaging activities with industry professionals from Channel 4 and across Northern Ireland to help young people make that next step. There will be talks, a chance to network and free master classes offering real engagement and help in areas such a video production, short form factual and social media, networking and building their own personal brand to help market their skills.
There are up to 100 places available. Places have been ring-fenced through our partner organisations in Derry.
Registration from 9.30am for a prompt start at 10.00am
No experience needed to join, but participation in the whole day is a requirement
Lunch will be provided free of charge and goody bags for all!
