About Connect To Meet Ups

Connect To meet up once a month, usually on the first Thursday of the month at 5:30 - 7pm. At every Meet Up we invite an creative industry professional come in and have a chat with us, so we can hear about their route into the industry, what they do, and their top tips and tricks for starting out.

Our speakers are from diverse backgrounds that reflect the diversity of the students we work with. You'll get to ask questions, meet with other students across UAL colleges, hear about loads of other opportunities & events that you can get involved with, (including £ paid roles) and hear about other student-led projects or promote things you’re working on! So make sure you're at the next Connect To Meet Up!

Be the first to hear who our guest speakers are and keep up to date with us by following us on our Instagram: @connect2network or signing up to Creative Shift’s monthly e-newsletter by clicking here.

Guest Speaker

Award winning fashion illustrator Anjelica Roselyn Dariah was born in Washington D.C. USA.

Raised and based in London, England, Anjelica studied at London College of Fashion with a BA (Hons) in Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear, during which she interned at labels such as Marc Jacobs and Ryan Lo.

In their May 2017 issue, ELLE Magazine Greece recognised Anjelica Roselyn as one of their Favourite Fashion Illustrators. ELLE.gr writes: "This talented girl from England can combine bold colors with feminist references. She describes her style as "free, funny and colorful". We would add "strangely intimate with a precious sense of street style atmosphere"". In 2019 Anjelica received the Harper's Bazaar x Caran D'Ache Fashion Illustration competition first prize.

Theme

Throughout the Spring Term we are thinking about ‘Making Things Happen - Planning, experimenting and tracking progress. Deciding what to do next and taking steps to do it.’

This March we'll be considering Agility, which we define as the ability to embrace rapid change and retain an open mind.
