Be part of a creative industries resource for young people

If you're an alumni of one of our creative industries courses, and now work in the creative industries, the Network for East Anglian Collaborative Outreach (NEACO) are offering you the chance to create a short film (2-4 minutes long) based on your experiences.

You must submit your film before 28 February 2021. If your film is accepted you will receive a payment of £30, as well as seeing it published on the Take Your Place website.

Together, these films will form a collection that shows young people from the East Anglian region the diversity of creative jobs available in the area, as well as the range of subjects they can study at University. Selected films will also be published on ARU's own YouTube channel and online platforms.
