EDUCATION

EDUCATION

Conferences in Primary, Middle & High Schools

Our workshop facilitate students to discern creativity as a profession and self-development of skills outside of an academic setting. We use an atypical approach and concrete examples related to our background and field. Through this exchange, students can idealize and sharpen their business insight, even recognize the presence of creativity in conventional fields. We experienced having no guidance or role models while introducing the creative field. We learned gradually to overcome casual barriers and pitfalls related to starting up in the industry. To eradicate this misfortune we share our knowledge and experience in order to impact and enlighten the young creators of tomorrow. The goal is to inspire and stimulate young minds, but still, cultivate creative entrepreneurs.
