The Alternative Careers Talk

The Alternative Careers Talk

Mon 11 February 2019 16:00-18:00 - Goldsmiths Students' Union Cafe

Meet Alec; a creative entrepreneur, editor, lecturer and general do-er who didn’t start his first internship until he was twenty-eight. From 4-6pm he’s here to debunk every myth that you’ve ever been told about making it in creative industries, and to get you angry about working for free.


Speaker Bio

Alec Dudson (he/him) is Founder and Editor-in-chief of Intern, a platform producing constantly evolving content, support and training for and by the creative youth. Since 2013, Alec’s work has revolved around the beliefs that young people are the future and that the creative industries have a fundamental problem when it comes to representation. His mission to empower emerging creatives also manifests as workshops, talks, freelance writing and as lecturer at Leeds Arts University, leading the professional practice module on level six graphic design.
