Graduate Takeover is a short season of events, advice and inspiration led by last year’s photography graduates, to help you hit the ground running. It’s free and open to all, especially new graduates and new starters, and co-delivered by Redeye, Fuse and Short Supply.
Our Careers Clinics are an open space for discussion, each week looking at a different element of running a successful creative practice. On Wednesday the 16th June we are thrilled to welcome Jaheed Hussain, founder of Fuse, and Hawwa Alam, co-founder of The Rice Bowl Collective, to talk about marketing yourself and your work.
Fuse was founded in 2019 to champion the work of creatives of colour and provide community and support. Two years on it has chapters in 10 cities and supports creatives by sharing resources, advice, opportunities and providing a platform for their work.
In this session Jaheed and Hawwa will talk about the strategies for marketing yourself and your work, drawing on their expertise of building artist-led platforms.
The second half of the session will be dedicated to discussion and a Q&A, so please bring your questions!
