12 speakers, 12 stories: A night to celebrate the careers and curiosities of Abertay’s Graduate Network

In collaboration with Creative Dundee, Abertay University’s 25th anniversary celebrations are set to continue as a handful of its Graduate Network gear up to talk all things ‘Bell Street and Beyond’…Pecha Kucha* style on 28 September, 6 – 9 pm at Dundee Contemporary Arts.

With a nod to their Bell Street campus connections, 12 graduates from Abertay University, Dundee Institute of Technology, and Dundee College of Technology will share stories about their diverse career journeys through this fun and informal format, imparting collective wisdom from professional and personal experiences over the years.

From football management and professional travel blogging to games development and social entrepreneurship, this event is perfect for regular PechaKucha-goers and those who’d love to learn a little about a lot.

Following the quick-fire talks, the party will continue with complimentary drinks and nibbles in DCA’s foyer. There will also be the opportunity to view a selection of Abertay’s 25 Year Archive Exhibition.

Join us for this one-off event and prepare to be inspired by Abertay’s Graduate Network.
