Working Space

A series of professional practice and creative sector networking events for students and Graduates of The Glasgow School of Art.

The GSA Enterprise Studio in collaboration with GSA Creative Network, is delighted to present our Working Space Programme: a series of professional practice and creative sector networking events. These early evening talks bring together students, graduates, industry experts and employers to explore a range of career and professional development themes. This special Working Space programme is most useful to recent graduates and final year students, but it is open to any of you, currently studying, who are interested in learning key tactics, tips and strategies to help you make the best use of your time at The Glasgow School of Art and to support your transition out of education and beyond graduation.
