The Wayfinding Series is RMCAD’s career focused speaker series hosted by Career Services and the VASD Program. With equal parts inspiration and honesty, speakers share their path towards a successful creative life and all of the twists and turns involved in that journey. Addressing career-focused issues such as industry trends, relevant skills, making connections, and professional fulfillment, Wayfinding speakers highlight that there is no one way to find and live a successful, creative career and life. Speakers represent a variety of creative employment opportunities, connect to multiple academic departments, and reveal that professional creatives are found in diverse and sometimes surprising fields.
