Avenues for Creative Talent (ACT) is an event for new visual professionals within the Pittsburgh area to better their potential job prospects and opportunities through networking, understanding how to market and brand oneself, and critiquing resumes and portfolios. Individuals will receive help from actual professionals and advisors within their field through conversation, not lectures and speeches.
The fields include fine art (2d and 3d), graphic design, photography, video editing, film making, art therapy, art history, fashion, interior design and more. This event will also provide the opportunity for students to display and, if desired, sell their work.
ACT is free to any student enrolled full time in a university and is ideal for juniors and seniors. However, this event is open to anyone.
