Emspace Group, an Omaha-based communications strategy studio, knows Omaha is a great place for young professionals.  To give these young professionals a competitive advantage upon graduation – and to help keep them here in Omaha – Emspace Group presents a new collaborative opportunity for emerging creatives: Forge. Beginning Wednesday, January 16, from 4 – 6 p.m., ten creative students from multiple creative disciplines will connect with experienced professionals from the creative fields, providing an opportunity for in–depth discussions, networking and career guidance.

Emspace Group’s creative team and collaborating partners, including Steve Gordon of RDQLUS Creative, Linda Rajcevich of Methodist Hospital, Eric Downs of Grain & Mortar and Todd Murphy of Universal Information Services, will lead in-depth discussions on a variety of topics encompassing the direction of today’s creative field. Students will participate in engaging exercises each week to help jumpstart their future careers.

This program consists of seven sessions from January 16 through April 10. Forge will give the next generation of creative thinkers an experience not found in any classroom. Students will have the opportunity for: peer and professional networking, resume building, creative challenges, professional mentorship and collaboration, and a portfolio review.
