The Poundshop offers talks and workshops with the aim of giving knowledge of working within the creative industry. We talk about our practice in relation to entrepreneurialism, self-promotion, employment and other issues facing professional practitioners in the creative industries. The idea is to offer the audience insights in regards to their future career aspirations.
The Poundshop also visit art and design universities around UK, setting students a brief where they get to explore the possibilities of making good design for low cost with a focus on functionality and price.
