Staffordshire University is organising a free breakfast networking event on June 14th 2011. The Stoke-on-Trent campus will play host to employers within the creative industries, inviting them to come and meet the artists and designers of the future, and also to take the opportunity to view the June 2011 art & design degree shows. Please note that this is not a recruitment event: the University wants to provide an opportunity for students to develop their networking skills, and gain an understanding of working in the creative industries, and also for employers to appreciate upcoming talent.
