London College of Communication is delighted to announce the Graduate Residency Programme – supporting LCC graduates in the rapid development of innovative projects which have the potential for significant social or economic impact.

The Graduate Residency Programme is a new approach to graduate incubation, with LCC graduates who meet the criteria invited to apply for the 2017/18 pilot programme before the deadline of Wednesday 29 November at 12pm.

Successful graduates will receive support from LCC, including funding, access to our creative community, expert support, and the use of technical spaces.

The focus of this year’s residency is Diverse Communities. As a truly diverse creative community, our students, staff and graduates’ work challenges, questions, inspires and positively impacts our disciplines and creative industries.

“We want to hear from graduates with the drive and enthusiasm to rapidly move an idea for a project forward.” – Tim Hoar, Director of Business & Innovation at LCC

Tim Hoar, Director of Business & Innovation at London College of Communication, said: “We are committed to ensuring the Design, Media and Screen industries represent a diversity of both people and ideas, and about enhancing opportunities for all communities.

“Projects that are part of the Graduate Residency Programme will make a positive difference in diversifying the creative industries and ensuring progression into these disciplines is open and inclusive, delivering significant impact to society or the economy.

“We want to hear from graduates with the drive and enthusiasm to rapidly move an idea for a project forward, and make a significant impact. The I.P in all the projects remain the property of the graduates taking part in the residency programme.

“We won’t tell graduates what to do or how to do it, but we will help you on your way in making a real and tangible difference, be it locally, nationally or internationally.”
