Mix + Match

Annual Alumni Mentoring Event

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.

Mix + Match features an inspiring keynote followed by three round table sessions.

The round tables (three to four students and two to three alumni) 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.

The event culminates with an alumni happy hour, a great time to catch up with friends.
