Peabody x Bootstrap x LBB :: Alternative Careers Fair 18-22 Aug


We know it can be tough working out what to do next, but don’t panic! The Bootstrap Alternative Careers Fair is the place for you. Come down and learn about creative industries and setting up your own business.

This workshop is reserved for young people from East London who are starting out – and need some help, inspiration and guidance to get where they need to go.

The Alternative Careers Fair is thinking about what work will be like in the 21st century. Together with Bootstrap & Peabody, LBB will be leading a week-long programme to provide opportunities for young people from Hackney and East London to develop their professional skills and knowledge through a series of workshops, training and employment opportunities:
