This week a major event happening in the region is Thrive - Building a Career in the North East and Beyond, and it's a free event for students and graduates. It is the Equity student symposium where you can gain the tools you will need to launch your career. Equity activists, performers and officers will lead workshops throughout the evening to offer practical advice and essential information.

You will learn about your employment rights, including information on equalities, pay, overtime, bullying and harassment. You'll also learn about what your union does, and how you can get involved, as well as top tips for freelance life.

After the workshops, we’ll be hosting a panel Q&A on 'creating a meaningful career in the North East'. The following panellists have been confirmed so far:

Joe Douglas, Artistic Director of Live Theatre

Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to network with fellow creatives over drinks.
