Contemporary arts and design institution LASALLE College of the Arts is diversifying the learnings and opportunities for its students though a partnership with creative agency 72andSunny Singapore.
As part of the collaboration a number of LASALLE graduates will be offered an internship at 72andSunny, working on client briefs and projects over three months. At the end of the programme, one student will be offered a contract by the Singapore office. Throughout the year, current students will also be given the opportunity to work on live briefs as part of their course, and members of the 72andSunny team will give guest lectures to students across a range of areas including the benefits of failure, the art of storytelling in the creative world, and creating work that works.
“This collaboration with 72andSunny is a strategic initiative that will give students exposure to the whole breadth and depth of working in a creative agency,” said Steve Golden, director of LASALLE’s division of industry and community engagement. The partnership builds on the global mission of 72andSunny to expand the creative class and LASALLE’s desire to nurture enterprising and employable graduates.
72andSunny Singapore director of talent and operations Chiewling Tan said, “We’re excited about this partnership and the opportunities it opens up for us in the region. Establishing links to the super smart and talented creatives of the future is inspiring – both for our people and for the kind of work we want to be doing for our clients.”
