Creative Minds was organised by Khadija Bhayat, one of our Kickstarters supported by Simeone Moore (aka Zimbo). Part of the focus of the event was to show the stories of 30 of the most successful creatives who call Birmingham their home. The Home Grown is a free resource that collates these stories as video interviews, where the 30 creatives tell their career stories and share their advice.

Listen to their stories visitant the Home Grown website.

Celebrating inspiration.

At Creative Alliance we are proud to support initiatives that shed a light on emerging talent. The Creative Minds careers fair created an amazing space for young creatives to get in touch with some of the top organisations of the creative sector in the West Midlands. We want to thank Khadija and Simeon for the amazing work they have pulled together and to all organisations and attendees that made the event a success.
