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.
While there is nothing wrong with that, many of those who prefer to explore freelance and/or self-employment report feeling ill equipped and confused after university.
Whether environmental, circumstantial, socio-political, there is no denying that there has long been a problem with under-representation within the arts.
