Creative Talent Bolton
We are a talent agency based in the University of Bolton, aiming to provide students and alumni with the ability to connect with the creative departments, get the best possible work experience in their field and enable them to grow their personal and professional networks.
The aim of Creative Talent is to be self-sufficient, run by students, for students and with a heavy focus on creative collaboration across all departments in Bolton's school of arts. Currently we are an inter-departmental collaborative project between the Theatre/Performing Arts department and the Media department which are headed by Dr Nicola Shaw and Neil Dougan and was a recipient of the prestigious Jenkinson Award.
Creative Talent Bolton was created by media graduate-turn-intern Daniel Waldon, who was assisting Nicola and Neil in the setting up phase one of the agency. As of November 2018 Creative Talent has been handed over to current third year student Jessica Larkins for phase two.
