Learning

Fostering creative excellence is central to our ethos and our annual calendar of events. We have developed initiatives to support creatives throughout their careers and we’re always working to strengthen the learning opportunities we provide. In our efforts to foster creative excellence we encourage members to experience new and challenging influences and inspire them to push the boundaries in their own creative work. We also run a number of programmes to foster the next generation of creative talent.
