Goldsmiths - University of London: MA Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship

I came to Goldsmith University hoping for good education, but was rewarded with practical knowledge and experiences that I had only dreamt of.

Being the youngest amongst my peers I was a bit nervous about the amount of experience that I brought to the table. Yet it was that very aspect that made the learning so much more meaningful and fun as my ideas fitted in well with veterans from various creative worlds studying with me. “A new and unconventional approach” they called it- the thing that I, myself needed as an Indian to try and better the creative and cultural scenes in my country. Our mentors guided us through this course wonderfully and I will be eternally grateful for their role in my journey.

The MA in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship taught me how to effectively address social and cultural issues with creative media. After my course, I worked as the Chief Script Writer for a firm in India, where one of my projects was to conceptualize explainer videos for the Ministry of Human Resources and Development, Govt. of India directed towards empowering the women and girls of rural India. I am currently a Senior Copywriter in a creative firm where I have been able to head advertising and marketing projects for several established corporate entities as well as upcoming start-ups.
