Student Membership

Our network is home to over 700 individual creatives from around the region. From students and graduates to people with decades of experience, we all benefit from connection, support and promotion to meet new people, find new clients, audiences and collaborators and grow together.

As the talent of the future, we believe it is important to support students at all stages of their education and we work in partnership with both universities in the city to do that.

Together with Sheffield Institute of Arts we run a series of events each year aimed at students and recent graduates which bring students together with professional creatives from the region and beyond.

Student membership is just £1.66 a month and is open to any student whether you study at one of the city's universities or elsewhere. If you have any questions regarding membership please contact us.

"Sheffield Creative Guild has really helped me gain confidence in talking to people within the creative industry. As a student, having the confidence to speak to people who have been there and done it, and are continuing to do it, I think is really important. It not only helps your confidence but through networking and talking to people, it also creates potential contacts and job opportunities after Uni. I’ve met some really interesting, lovely people through the Guild from different backgrounds and professions. Everyone is really welcoming, even if you go on your own!"
