Studio Self Made

Studio Self Made addresses how most creative industry placements require relocation, which can be prohibitively expensive for many working class young people and how the reduction in higher education funding for art and design courses prevents students from less privileged backgrounds pursuing a creative career.

Emma Redfern, a Sheffield Hallam University student, won the Community Champion. Studio Self-Made provides an online education platform that helps bridge the gap between university and the working world through a digital internship with the mission to democratise creative career education.

"I didn't expect to win the community challenge, but it’s amazing, I’m really excited. It just shows no matter what background you come from, you can still go after your dreams and really do what you want to do."
