Naked and Art Series Hotels workshop creative futures for young people

Naked Communications has collaborated with client Art Series Hotels to host a workshop to help underprivileged young people discover a career in the creative industries.

The announcement:

After their recent multi-award win at both the Cannes Lion and Effie Awards, The Cullen, the edgy sister of The Art Series Hotels, co-hosted a workshop with Naked Communications which saw students
undertake a series of intensive idea sessions including the Art Series Hotel brief that lead to the Steal Banksy campaign.

The collaboration was one of series this week that saw creative agencies and businesses combine forces to support the work of I-Manifest, a not-for-profit that empowers underprivileged and rural
teenagers by exposing them to a realistic future in the creative industries. The group is part of a new wave of understanding of the need to actively support emerging talent.

For many creative teenagers in Australia today, the reality of pursuing a future in the creative industries remains an elusive dream due to a severe lack of exposure and information about the opportunities that
exist and the necessary pathways to succeed in the creative industries.

Become recruitment recognises this need and have supported The Creative Chronicle workshop series by providing ‘creative industries 101’ information sessions to help de-mystify the sometimes cryptic maze of career paths available.

The Creative Chronicle workshop hosts included Ikon Communications, Naked Communications, Tank Branding, Acclaim Magazine, Semi-Permanent and Reactive.

I-Manifest is a not-for-profit organization that empowers underprivileged and rural teenagers by exposing them to a realistic future in the creative industries.

The Creative Chronicles is a workshop series aims to help underprivileged teenagers every month be inspired and motivated to pursue a creative path. Combined with a mentor program which cements
relationships born between creative youth and professionals, I-Manifest aims to support it’s students from their first workshop experience until they achieve their educational and vocational aspirations.
