BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN CREATIVE LEADERS OF TODAY AND LEADERS OF TOMRROW

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, [it’s] because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.”

Steve Jobs

What is Shadowclub?

Despite being a booming industry, opportunities to break into the creative sector continue to be unequal, making it increasingly difficult for underrepresented young people to enter the scene. Shadowclub operates alongside some of the world’s most remarkable people in the creative industry, called Shadowclub Experts. Our system consists of three distinct components: guaranteed 30 minute monthly consultations, community, and events. We seek to build an institution of leaders, uniting different generations of Shadowers and Shadowclub Experts, to further the dynamic future of media, entertainment, and tech.
