Our story

FutureRising has been running for over four years, it was setup by Adam Oldfield and Donald Fogarty out of their own frustrations at getting into the creative industries. After lots of research, testing and feedback we completely understand the gap between education and the workplace in the creative industries.

Starting as a group of 10 people writing a careers advice blog, we have since worked with hundreds of professionals and teachers to deliver events and online content to thousands of students around the world.

This platform is designed to bring together everyone who are passionate about the creative industries in the UK. It increases active members chances of employment by making them workplace ready, building their connections and giving them a full understanding. It enables employers to efficiently connect and engage with talented young people. It helps teachers deliver the education and skills they provide to their students.

Many thanks to the hundreds of people who have contributed to FutureRising's success so far.
