Prior to COVID, I attended a Networking workshop at City Tech organized by professor Garrastaggi. It was a group of young black men from different specialties within the creative industry who came to share their experiences breaking and working in their field. They talked about the different twists and turns on their journey and how they came together to help other upcoming creatives avoid some of the pitfalls they experienced.
I found it to be profoundly informative and I was able to ask questions and voice some of the concerns I had about the industry. I was able to make some connections and got a lot of information that I know will help me on my quest to break into the industry and have some measure of success.
