Have you always wanted to work in the creative world but never knew where to start? The Hoxton have heard how hard it can be to get involved and have pledged to make a difference. Like me they’re obviously a fan of H themed alliteration, having launched their “Hox How To” series of creative events in the UK last night.
Having announced events in London, Paris and Amsterdam they’ve provided the perfect opportunity for you, the public, to gain insight from some of the world’s most innovative creative pioneers in some of the continent’s most exciting cultural hotspots
The Hoxton’s hotels have always taken inspiration from their surroundings and these quarterly events are no different. The Hoxton, Holborn which hosted last night’s inaugural British event focuses on the world of fashion. Their first step, entitled “Hox How To: Get Your Foot In The Fashion Industry” saw an exhaustive list of tastemakers and trendsetters that included Nick Carvell as well as representatives from Stylist and WGSN, share their top tips on breaking into the world of style. The Hoxton, Shoreditch, are looking out for the music makers with their “Hox How To: Make It In Music” which’ll have reps from big name labels like XL and Island as well as Viper Magazine and Rinse FM queen Lily Mercer descending on the Hotel next month. The Hoxton, Amsterdam is the place to visit for all you designers out there. Earlier in the month they showcased a how to on creating kickass interiors with a little help from the brilliant guys and girls at MADE.com and Interior Junkie and following on from that success they’ve announced three more events later in the year including a lesson on how to launch your own product line. If you’re more tech minded and the thought of cryptocurrency gives you that warm fuzzy feeling then The Hoxton, Paris is the place to be with discussions on the future of Bitcoin sure to arise (and fall). For all you artists based over the Atlantic, don’t fret as they even have you covered. Upon the completion of The Hoxton, Williamsburg they’ll be announcing a series of how-to’s on art. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled on The Hoxton site for updates on this and any other future events.
Taking guests creativity and curiosity to the next level, all for the price of a Wetherspoons (tickets cost £7/€8), the Hoxton are ensuring future creatives can make as big a splash as possible.
