Arts Career Conversations


What are the Arts Career Conversations?

The Arts Career Conversations are a series of events aimed at helping Arts students connect to a variety of Arts alumni and hear their career stories over the course of a night. Through panel discussions, facilitated networking, and food, this flash-mentoring experience is an opportunity to hear first-hand from alumni about their career learnings and lessons, ask questions, practice professional communication, and meet other UBC students who have the same career questions that you do. Attend one event or more, it’s up to you.

Three Arts Career Conversations are planned for 2018/19 and will take place in October, January and March.
