Creative industries roadshow in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Seoul

Posted on 23rd February 2018 by International Recruitment


In March 2018, Kent will take part in the British Council’s Creative Industries Roadshow in East Asia, showcasing study and career options in architecture, design and the arts. The Roadshow includes events in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Seoul.

These events are great opportunities for anyone considering working in the creative industries. Professor Gerry Adler, Deputy Head of Kent School of Architecture, will be travelling to all three cities as part of the Roadshow. 

In Tokyo and Seoul he will deliver a seminar, “Understanding the Past, Building the Future”. This will aim to answer questions like “How do we live?” “How do our houses and apartments look, and how do they combine to make our villages, towns and cities?” If these questions fascinate you, and if the answer you seek is not just an ‘academic’ one but one that you actively hope to address by your own design work and engagement with planning and construction, then architecture may well be for you. The event will also feature academics from other UK universities across design, fashion and the arts, talking about how these disciplines respond to 21st century challenges and how you can prepare yourself for careers in these fields. 

In Hong Kong, Professor Adler will take part in a panel session with locally-based architecture professionals, talking about the built environment and taking audience questions. We will also have academic staff from Film (Dr Maurizio Cinquegrani) and Digital Arts (Dr Rocio von Jungenfeld) there to answer your questions one to one.
