Womenfolk, Creating A Space & Blick Shared Studios have teamed up to create a unique interactive event with a panel of female design students talking about their experiences and journey in the design industry/education to date and what their plans, ambitions and aspirations for the future are.
We will also ask them to give us their thoughts on the design industry in Belfast, the future of Belfast as a design city and how we can encourage and inspire more women in Belfast to take on design leadership roles and/or start their own design businesses.
The title of this event is 'The Time is Now' and the phrase came from noticing that there is such a change within Belfast, especially within the creative scene. We are excited that there seems to be more focus within young women on what they want to do within their careers. There is no time like the present.
In this event we will discuss how we can encourage and support young student female designers to become the next generation of design leaders. We also want to open up the conversation about what it is like being within these industries, the struggles that are faced and how to empower ourselves in the face of adversity.
There will be a panel of four female design students from different design disciplines and backgrounds discussing their perspective of achieving success within the design industries
If you are looking to be encouraged and inspired, this is the event for you. Come and join us.
This workshop funded by Belfast City Council as part of a project to encourage more women to seek careers in the design industry
