The creative industry is a big, big world. It covers a wide range of fields that vary from making art and branding to photography and writing. It’s an industry where you can practice your passion in your job, and who doesn’t want that, right? This is why finding a constant place in it won’t be easy for everyone, whether you came from art or business school or not. It calls for originality in a fast-changing landscape. To some, it’s a continuous trial-and-error phase.

There are no written guidelines on how to survive this industry, but asking those who had been in your shoes before can help. And as timely as it is, Scout Creative Talks is back with their talented roster of personalities who are ready to help you find your creative edge. On Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., engage in a series of dialogues with experts of different creative fields at the Samsung Hall of SM Aura Premiere in Bonifacio Global City.

Here’s a deeper look into the speakers, in case you’re wondering:
