Preparing students and schools for future careers in the creative arts

Saturday 10/15 1:00PM - 2:00PM Room 204

Wacom, Nicole Hendrix, Anne Younglove, Simone Price, Carson Smith

The wide-spread adoption of remote work and virtual workflows has forced technology innovation. For professional in the creative community, many of these changes were anticipated and largely in process already. However, many students and their schools don’t have the technology or the expertise in place to teach students about these new ways of working. This panel and open discussion will share ideas on how to help our schools teach and support students who want to pursue careers in the arts and share resources and tips on getting involved with schools and teachers who are coaching and leading our new generation of artists.


Preparing for the future of the creative industry

Saturday 10/15 2:30PM - 3:30PM Room 204

Wacom, Felix Jorge, AJ Wedding, Erik Weaver, Eric Rigney, Tom Thudiyanpackal

The last three years forced the creative industry into innovating and implementing new working styles, from wide-spread adoption of virtual production to preparing an entire workforce to work remotely. Many of these changes have been beneficial to artists, while some changes have put artists at risk. The panel and open conversation will offer ideas on what the future holds and how we can both prepare for the next wave of innovation and help artists navigate the current reality. Guests include: experts who work in virtual production, a professional studio head who works in a studio that has a remote work force, an expert who helps artists freelance without being taken advantage of, and education experts to discuss ways that we can prepare students for this future, as well as a representative of Wacom who will share the ways technology has changed and is currently adapting to these new ways of working.
