“If you’re a young person trying to break into the creative industry right now, you are going to hit obstacles no previous generation has dealt with. You can’t interview in person, you can’t exhibit your work, you can’t intern, you just can’t access the expertise and experiences so often crucial to shaping your future and fulfilling potential’ explained Ben Moutrie, Founder.
The Midnight Club have taken the flexibility and clarity the pandemic presented to them to engineer new opportunities to support the growth and wellbeing of creative, multi-cultural youth; and in turn, the future of an industry in rapid flux. HONEY was their solution. Looking to their own capabilities, technology and infrastructure to create an inclusive springboard – run by some of London’s best creative talent.
The initiative was originally inspired by bees honey – an ancient antidote built on creativity, team-cohesion and bio-diversity. It’s a precious substance that embodies the vitality of humankind and its delicate relationship with its natural surroundings.
To mark the launch, they’ve harvested their own honey at a rooftop hive in Camden – anyone who purchases a jar (£10) directly supports the program. And why wouldn’t you, it’s one of the only ingredients on earth that stays fresh forever.
The program will be available to book for 18+ from the 16th November at www.thesittightclub.com/honey
