Our event focuses on developing three key skills; presentation, software and marketing. Through the use of traditional media and Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign students will be asked create a suite of social media marketing material that can be used by our collaborator, Nightsafe.

The program looks at how narratives can be creatively documented in order to effectively communicate the journey and thus maximise their appeal and exposure. We hope that this will allow Nightsafe’s profile to expand and prove an invaluable tool in the charity’s future.

In today’s world, these skills are vital in the creative industry and we hope that students partaking in the event will benefit in their student and professional lives.
