Lecture in Progress is an inclusive creative careers resource, on a mission to transform the way emerging talent access, understand and connect with the industry.

We encourage greater transparency and representation within the creative working world by sharing advice and insight, highlighting entry-level opportunities and hosting events that bring talent and industry together.

So if you don’t know what’s next or are in need of some extra guidance, this is the perfect place to start.

Lecture in Progress has been created by the founders of It’s Nice That, Will Hudson and Alex Bec, as part of The Hudson Bec Group, and is made possible with the support of our partners.
