Kids, how quickly they grow up, going from your cute little cherubs playing dress up, to young adults starting their careers, scary times for everyone especially you (unfortunately you can’t protect them forever).
So your little peanut (that’s what my family called me as a child…but never stopped) decides that they want to do something creative, they’re not sure what exactly but do know that that is the path for them, they just need to narrow down the options. The best way to do this is to test the waters, but as a ‘grown up’ you know nothing is that simple, nobody wants to give you a chance without first having some experience, but you can’t get that experience without someone giving you a chance, the irony is laughable unless you’re living it. Enter the Round House to the rescue.
This wonderfully round building offers a bunch of courses and workshops in creative writing, interactive theatre, music production, web design and practically every other creative field you can think of.
If you, or your child, are between 11-25 – sorry old people – and want to explore the many creative realms, I strongly urge you to have a looky here. You’ll get advice and tips from industry professionals, meet new people with similarly mad hair, but most importantly you’ll receive experience in the field you later hope to work in. It may not be a job but colleges, universities and employers love to see evidence of your dedication, so go for.
It’s never easy choosing a career path, hopefully the Round House will help making that decision sightly more bearable.
