Pedestrian were delighted to welcome 02 Think Big staff into the gallery on Wednesday 15th May. 02’s Think Big project is designed to fund and support young peoples projects within their local community. 02 employees within the SMB (small and medium businesses) Marketing Team ventured to Leicester after Pedestrian was identified as active and influential in aiding young people’s involvement within the community.
02 staff spent the day with The Window Curators, helping them with marketing strategies for the upcoming ‘Illustrarte’ exhibition, and also joined in on a tour of the creative industry within Leicester.
In partnership with VESA, Pedestrian is also running a programme with young people from local schools called ‘Discovering the Creative Industry’. Students have been taken on exclusive tours and spoken to leading industry professionals within Leicester, providing them with the relevant information to begin their journey into the creative sector. 02 staff also met some of the young people within the programme and spoke with them about their future creative aspirations.
Here’s what O2 said about the day…
“All of the O2 staff really enjoyed themselves and they were so pleased to support Pedestrian on the day. They were especially excited to find out more about the organisation and the fantastic work they do and felt extremely appreciative in helping to support the marketing of Pedestrian’s upcoming exhibition. I would like to thank you for helping to make the day a success and would be more than willing to look at how O2 staff can support you in the future.”
