Stay tuned for the next Creative Futures Expo in fall 2018!

Are you a high school student with an interest in the commercial arts? Or are you out of school but looking to switch careers? Launch your creative career at the Creative Futures Expo!

This two-day event, formerly known as the Creative Schools Expo, is Canada's only school fair for the visual communications sector.

The Creative Futures Expo is a school fair and career information event for high school students interested in pursuing careers in visual communications and the creative arts. 

At the Expo, high school students meet with representatives from leading universities, colleges and vocational schools with programs in the creative arts. They can also sit in on speaker sessions featuring young professionals in the advertising, design and image-making industries who answer questions about their job descriptions, workflow, portfolios and how they chose their schools. Past speakers have included Shauna Roe, copywriter at Leo Burnett Canada, Andrew Passas, associate design director at john st., and Nneka Myers, visual development artist at Corus Entertainment.
