Talent Works is a programme offering paid work to students with local charities and social enterprises, run by London College of Communication and Camberwell College of Arts. Clients making a difference in our community receive creative work for free.

On Friday 7 December, Talent Works opened as a 10-day pop-up creative studio based in Oval, in a venue provided by Workspace Group.

33 LCC and Camberwell students from 20 different undergraduate courses will work on briefs from 13 local charities and social enterprises. Briefs cover filmmaking, print and digital design, motion graphics, animation, UX and social media strategy.

Charities and social enterprises the students are working with include:

  • Draper Together, the tenants and residents association for the Draper Estate, Elephant and Castle.
  • Edible Rotherhithe, a social enterprise showing children how to grow their own food
  • Southwark Pensioners Centre, a charity supporting older people in Southwark.
  • Rapport Festival, a Brixton based festival celebrating art from the African diaspora.
  • Waterloo Community Theatre, who create theatre with and for young people aged 8 – 18 in North Lambeth and Southwark.

To support the students, volunteers from the creative industry will be dropping in to offer their expertise.

Volunteers are joining us from Collider, Impact London, IDEO, St Lukes, Wolf and Player, for people, Pulse Films, Trunk, Weber Shandwick, MullenLowe London and Blenheim Films.
