Looking at graduate opportunities, Ingrid suggested I take a look at the inc space through the university. I was not really aware of this before but reading into it it seems like something I would like to go into. For me I would like to build my own business probably as a jewellery designer so this would be the extra lift I need in experience and also mentoring help to guide in my studies.
“CSAD’s Inc. Space provides an opportunity for our graduates to spend an additional year with the School to launch their own business or a sustainable career as a practicing artist or designer. During the 12 months they receive mentoring from an academic team member to help them develop their practice, a mentor to help them develop their business skills and their own studio within the Inc. Space at CSAD. They have access to all of the School’s workshops and facilities and support from our technical team to continue to develop their practical skills. The School also works closely with the University’s Centre for Student Entrepreneurship and a wide range of professionals who provide workshops, talks and advice to ensure they’re in the strongest position to succeed in their chosen careers in the long term.”
