Working life studies boosting your future

Boost your future career networking event was organized 15 November 2023 for the third time, this time together with Uniarts Helsinki and Globe Art Point. The aim of the event was to boost career competencies and encourage professional collaboration of international and national students, artists and cultural workers who want to make Finland their home.

We thank for the opportunity to take part of the event as an organizer as well as a stand holder. The need for support for the independent arts sector arose both in the panel discussions and in the discussions at the stand. 

We would also like to thank the participants of the event for the interesting discussions!

Trade unions participated in the event as exhibitors and raised awareness of trade union activities among event participants.
Various associations such as Catalyst and the University of the Arts Open campus were also represented at the event.
The event included workshops on how to apply for a grant, among other things. The grant writing workshop was led by our working life lecturer Satu Tuittila.

The event created a space for dialogue through panels and open networking

The panel discussions will be shared on the University of the Arts Youtube channel. Follow this blog for up-to-date information.
