We’re excited to announce that we are putting the music industry firmly on the agenda at this year’s DN Skills Fest. We will present Music Industry Panel on 7th February at The Dome, Doncaster.
Organised by Doncaster chamber and Doncaster Skills Academy, DN Skills Fest will see over 1500 local young people visiting on the day. The event is focused on further education and career options.
We will present a stand about music industry career options available through both of our professional music industry facilities in Doncaster. This includes our new BTEC National Diploma. We will also present a panel of music industry experts discussing roles and careers available in the music industry.
The panel will feature:
Timm Cleasby – Operation Director Tramlines Festival.
Skinny Pelembe – locally raised music artist signed to a global record deal.
Simon Benger- Music Relationship Manager at Arts Council England.
Bex Ransom, Creative Programme Officer at Help Musicians UK.
The panel will also be compared by Christian Carlisle, presenter and producer at BBC Introducing South Yorkshire.
The experts will share their experience and tips about employment in the modern music industry. They will also answer questions from the audience. The event will start at 10am, it’s free to enter, and is perfect for young people considering their career options. It’s also suitable for teachers or careers advisors who need better information for signposting young people to the music industry.
