A CREATIVE experience agency is teaming up with its local college to provide students with a chance to show off their creativity and have their artwork put on a huge display.
Chichester-based event experience company, Collaborate, is running a competition among Chichester College students to allow them to explore their creativity, with the prize of having their artwork displayed on the company’s 20ft container.
Students taking art or graphic design will vie to come up with the best design for the container, which sits in Collaborate’s office grounds near the West Witterings.
The winner will see their design displayed for the foreseeable future and will also take home £500.
Other departments within the college will also be getting involved in the project, including the media department, whose students will be producing a post-production package to document the project.
It is part of the firm’s initiative to engage more young talent and show young creatives that there are opportunities right on their doorstep.
The team will be hosting more events through the college, including taking five media students to shoot content for brands such as Aston Martin through Collaborate’s current projects at Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Marketing and content manager visited the college on Wednesday, May 4 to introduce the competition to the students and brief them on the project
Collaborate decided to launch the initiative because they felt that the container, which is currently only used to divide the office grounds, could be used to tell the brands story of ‘creativity without borders’ and hopefully inspire both the students and staff that will see it every day.
Ollie said: ‘‘Our projects see us working with brands on a global scale and we use creative talent from across the world, so to channel any young creative minds and to do so right on our doorstep is an opportunity for everyone involved. We want to show those with a passion and a dream that Chichester can be the home to true creative wonder and opportunity. With Goodwood right here and our relationship with their team incredibly strong, the sky really is the limit for these students.
‘We wish the students the best of luck and can’t wait to receive what we anticipate will be some amazing entries.’
