Many students leave uni feeling that they've been prepped and geared up for employment, i.e: the studios, the internships and the traditional 9-5 routes.

Kei Maye is a multi-disciplinary creator, educator and founder based in London. She is passionate about making learning resources accessible for emerging creators.
Kei has seventeen years of experience in the creative industry, spent twelve years freelancing, five selling art-based products and licensing and six years working within the education sector; facilitating learning for young learners through to young adults.
Throughout the years, Kei noticed that resources and support weren't easily accessible to creators from marginalised backgrounds and over the years, did a lot of 'learning on the job'.
Now, she's got bundles of experience and wants to share it with the frustrated creators of today who might feel exactly like she did when she started her journey.
Kei believes in sharing support, resources and content without massive paywalls and gatekeeping and spends her time curating resources and providing expert-led classes to help you to make a living doing what you love.
