Our year so far

We’re a quarter of the way through 2020 and during these uncertain times, we wanted to show you some of the cool stuff we have been up to so far.

Andy Copping

Andy Copping has worked in the music industry for over 30 years. He is the festival booker for Download Festival and promoter for Live Nation. He has been responsible for booking some big names, including Guns‘n’Roses and Iron Maiden! A selection of ACC Lincoln students had exclusive access to an intimate talk with Andy himself. The seating was filled with eager students ready to hear about how Andy started in the business, as well as industry insights and advice from the festival king himself.

ACC Industry Week 2020

We were really excited to have launched our second Industry Week back in March. We partnered with a range of Music, Media, Events and Games leaders who came to speak and provide workshops to our students about every aspect of their career and industry. What a great way to celebrate National Careers Week!

Apprenticeships 

We were very excited to announce a joint venture partnership with the newly launched National College Creative Industries Ltd (NCCI Ltd), which now see’s us delivering apprenticeships.

As you may already know, we have campuses all over the UK and we were chosen by the government’s education department, to take on this exciting opportunity, to deliver this method of employer-led, work focused training to help forge more exciting careers in the creative industries than ever before.

ACC Virtual Festival 

With all the festivals and live events being cancelled left, right and centre, we have decided to do our own completely online. 

The ACC Virtual Festival is an online festival which will incorporate all things creative. We understand the importance of social distancing, but this doesn’t mean we can’t bring everyone together through the power of the digital world. It has gone off to a great start so far with plenty of live performances, masterclasses and Q&As with industry professionals so don’t miss out!

Check out who you can stream today.

#KeepCalmKeepCreative

Our new campaign KeepCalmKeepCreative aims to encourage you to use your time in isolation to be creative, work on new skills and look after your mental health. It’s a community based project where we share, communicate and collaborate in order to inspire and keep each other motivated in the weeks and months ahead. We want you to share any kind of creative project that you are working on in isolation which will then be shared via the hashtag #KeepCalmKeepCreating across our social media channels. We also want you to create behind the scenes content and updates of you working and talking about the importance of staying busy and creative.
