Mix + Match
Alumni Mentoring Event with Keynote by Mark Mallman ’95
Mix + Match is an engaging, half-day mentoring event connecting MCAD alumni with students in their third or fourth year to help get them thinking about their futures, gain confidence knowing how others have made their way, and understand how their MCAD experience can help them shape their creative lives post-MCAD.
This year's Mix + Match will feature an inspiring keynote by Mark Mallman ’95—musician, composer, and performance artist—followed by three round table sessions.
The round tables (3 to 4 students and 2 to 3 alumni) will allow for an exchange of ideas and experiences between students and alumni from the same discipline. Think personal stories and anecdotes, lessons learned, and tips on navigating the exciting, yet challenging, path to a successful career as an artist, designer, animator, creative, or entrepreneur.
Finally, the event culminates with an alumni happy hour, a great time to catch up with friends at the Black Forest Inn.
Refreshments will be available throughout the event.
