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.
For our Graduate Takeover month all of our regularly scheduled Friday Live events will feature 2020 graduates who took part in our mentoring scheme. This will be an opportunity to hear from new photographic talent and ask any questions about their first year out of uni.
Where does it all happen?
We go Live via our Instagram page for half-hour conversations between 5 - 8pm on a Friday. You can drop in and leave a comment or question, or just listen along! Your camera and mic would not be on, so no need to worry as you join.
You can watch along live to send in your questions or catch up with the IGTV recording of the conversation on our Instagram page.
