November's Meet the Creative Industries drop-in is focused around the Future of Work/Freelance whilst surviving in the gig economy.

Creative Job Studio is the inspirational talent and skills development space for young people to meet arts organisations and creative professionals in partnership with Creative Society.

In response to our major new exhibition 24/7, an essential exhibition for today, exploring the non-stop nature of modern life through a series of immersive, playful works from some of today’s most exciting global artists, our November Meet the Creative Industries drop-in is focused around the Future of Work and Freelance.

Gain insight and chat face to face with artists and creative professionals working across various practices, some based within Somerset House’s Resident community as well as from a wide range of London’s creative capital. Ask direct questions to those working freelance, hear about their creative journeys, learn how they juggle their creative projects and commercial client’s needs, whilst surviving in the gig economy.

Expect to meet an array of industry professionals, make connections, exchange ideas with peers, seek advice and tips for your own future career ambitions, and leave inspired!

You'll also be able to visit Somerset House’s newest permanent gallery space, Gallery 31 and view the latest season, BONDS.

Somerset House is London's working arts centre, and home to the largest and most exciting creative community in the UK, already made up of Somerset House Studios, Somerset House Exchange, Makerversity, resident creative businesses and our cultural programme.
