Where is this coming from?
Frost*academy was born from two simple yet important observations.
1- There are A LOT of talented young souls out there.
We’ve been around for quite some time now, and we know there is a huge amount of young talent out there just waiting for the right opportunity. We strongly believe that a brilliant mind, or a shrewd thinker, should be able to nourish their creative spark – and we want to help you to do this.
2- There is only SO MUCH you can learn at uni.
No matter how many classes you take, conferences you attend, newsletters you subscribe to, or twitter feeds you follow, the truth is you probably don’t have a realistic picture of the industry – just yet. Don’t get us wrong, all this hard work will be an invaluable resource, but you need to dive in head first, and experience what it’s really all about. You need to know the type of people you will be working with every day, understand the challenges you will face when working in our dynamic and vibrant environment, and know what it takes to thrive in this industry.
We’re not going to lie. It’s probably harder than you expect. But we see ourselves as a springboard to the real, crazy, tough, energising and inspiring working world that is the creative industry.
Why do WE DO it?
Because we are passionate about talent, in all shapes and forms, and we genuinely enjoy nurturing and helping young souls grow professionally and personally into the creatives they are born to be.
At the risk of sounding cheesy, we believe, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” We believe you will also help us go further. We want to hear from young minds.
We do it because we believe that diversity (in age, culture, background and vision) is a prerequisite for creative and outstanding outcomes.
Finally, we do it because we want to attract and retain the best talent.
