Perspective artists, alert!
If you are an avid artist between Grades 6-11 and seek a future career in the arts industry, a rare opportunity takes place tomorrow evening just for you.
This Thursday, BCIS is gathering a multitude of arts professionals from a diverse range of fields to answer questions from students considering a career in the arts.
Students from all of Beijing’s international schools are encouraged to attend. This is a great opportunity for students to make the link between studying the arts in school and a career in the arts industry.
If your child is considering a career in the arts industry, why not stop on by.
Director, producer, and author Tony Stimac who has been active in off-broadway productions in the US since the 1960s, will be one of the evening’s keynote speakers, as will Dominic Johnson-Hill, the founder and creative director of Beijing’s own Plastered T-Shirts.
Following these brief speakers, there will be meeting sessions where young Future Arts Workers can select which guest speaker they would like to interact with.
This is a great opportunity to strengthen your child’s insight in the arts industry, and can help them to plan earlier for their future.
