Creative support for City’s emerging entrepreneurs

Gold Coast creatives aged 15 – 24 are in for a treat this month as the City of Gold Coast libraries present their ‘Emerging Creatives Bootcamp.’

Designed to give a boost, inspiration, ideas and assistance to young artists and keen entrepreneurs-to-be, the two day bootcamp will boast workshops, idea clinics and seminars hosted by top entrepreneurs and leading creatives.

Triple J’s Tom Tilley – best known for his program Hack – will MC the weekend’s proceedings. As a leading voice for youth current affairs and bass player of ever-popular Client Liaison, Tilley is a perfect fit for the role.

Other presenters include: Jock Fairweather, founder and director of thriving innovation and co-working space Little Tokyo Two; Entrepreneur Mitch Hills, known for his social media savvy and company Mastered Marketing; Alyce Cowell, the official blogger for Westfield and owner of Bossy Creative agency; and Scott Millar, who at just 17 is the CEO and founder of BOP Industries, a holographic projections startup.

The bootcamp’s main aim is to encourage and drive entrepreneurship across a range of creative industries in the city, and is designed to provide skills and knowledge development, expose participants to role models, instigate collaboration and develop core skills essential for startups.

Bootcamp places are free but by application only and strictly limited. You must be a Gold Coast resident aged 15 to 24 and able to attend the entire bootcamp, which runs over the weekend 24 and 25 February 2018.
