Pathways for Creative Futures

The Pathways for Creative Futures reimagines work-integrated learning (WIL) for the creative industry by bridging students into creative careers and linking industries with fresh talent eager to tackle innovation and collaborative challenges.

From May to December 2024, Pathways for Creative Futures will offer 140 students curricular WIL opportunities across three areas: industry projects related to animation, arts entrepreneurship and service learning for lens-based artists. Blending academic learning with practical experience, the Pathways for Creative Futures provides hands-on training through partnerships with animation studios, community organizations, artists, curators and cultural workers to enhance the creative sector’s resilience and develop a strong talent pipeline. 

Further details will be forthcoming in the following weeks. If you have any inquiries regarding our Pathways for Creative Futures program, please do not hesitate to contact Ashley Cheah at

Pathways for Creative Futures is funded in partnership with the Business + Higher Education Roundtable and with support from the Government of Canada.
