UK Creatives: Would You Like to Spend 3 Months Working for a Creative Business Abroad?

Do you work in the UK creative industries? Would you like to broaden your creative and cultural experience by working for a creative business in another country – maybe even on another continent?

If so, check out the British Council’s International Placements for Creative Entrepreneurs, a scheme that offers the chance to work in a creative business abroad for three months. If you like what you see then download and complete the application form – but don’t hang around, the deadline for applications is 19th September.

I learned about the International Placements scheme recently when I was invited by Kat McMann to listen to a group of returning creative entrepreneurs recount their experiences of living and working in Singapore, South Africa, Nigeria and the Netherlands. They all seemed to have gained a lot from their placements – personally, professionally and creatively. If I didn’t have so many irons in the fire right now I would be tempted to apply myself.

More details, including an application pack and application form are available on the Cultural Leadership Programme website.

If you are successful in landing a placement please let me know – maybe you would like to tell Wishful Thinking readers about it on your return…
