Creative Events Signs Up Celebrity Names
A seven week pop-up initiative aimed at offering young people the chance to work alongside experts from the creative industries has launched in London’s Brick Lane.
Shinebright Studio, which is being run by drinks brand Glacéau Vitaminwater at The Old Truman Brewery, has attracted personalities across entertainment, music and fashion.
Names involved include singer-songwriter Foxes, SBTV media boss Jamal Edwards, founder of the school for creative startups Doug Richard and fashion designers Agi & Sam and Christopher Raeburn.
All will be taking part in one off mentoring sessions at the art and exhibition venue designed to encourage attendees to reach their full artistic and entrepreneurial potential.
Foxes, whose real name is Louisa Rose Allen, said:
“The whole concept of the studio is really exciting for me, somewhere with real creativity and a sense of opportunity at its heart.”
“I’m thrilled to be holding a mentoring workshop where we can all talk about our shared passion for music and arts,” she added.
SBTV founder Edwards said he was equally excited about “being a part of something that is directly plugged into what’s important to young, passionate people these days.”
Exhibitions will be held throughout summer before one young artist is given the opportunity to exhibit their own work during the final week.
Also on offer is a chance to win a place on the School for Creative Start-Up’s nine-month training and support programme.
The prize, worth £3,500, is designed develop an individual’s business acumen, getting tips from industry experts.
To enter, entrants are required to upload a 15 second pitch to the Vitaminwater Instagram page.
Shinebright Studio is open now and runs until 10th September, admission is free. For further information, visit shinebrightstudio.co.uk.
