Learning Networking event

Ardagh Young Creatives x Design Can

Are you aged 14 – 21 and curious about design?

Join the Ardagh Young Creatives and Design Can for an inspiring afternoon of speed networking with professionals working across different design fields.

This is an opportunity for young people to ask the burning questions about what it’s really like to work within design and find out more about creative career paths.

What to expect

Join this free event with Design Can for the opportunity to meet professional creatives working in the realms of design including architecture, photography, engineering, art direction, graphic design, curation, fashion and more.

We believe that the design world isn't as diverse as it could be and we want to contribute towards positive change. Our events welcome young people of colour, those with a neurodivergence or disability, those who access free school meals or pupil premiums (or have done in the past), young carers, and those who are care experienced or care leavers. Deisgn Can works to confront prejudice, eliminate discrimination and champion representation in the creative industry.
