UAE - Creative Technology Middle East (CTME) is supporting Sharjah Performing Arts Academy (SPAA) in their mission to train undergraduate students in performing arts sectors, with a particular focus on supporting students in the production arts.
CTME has partnered with SPAA to deliver technical information and guidance to students to further their knowledge and passion for entering the production world. CTME’s industry professionals have already provided several engaging classes, sharing their years of experience and expertise around video elements within the live events industry.
The partnership has progressed well over the past six months, and CTME is now providing additional support by supplying various video equipment for the students to train on.
CTME is keen to engage with the academic sector and with SPAA in particular as this will help increase the number of skilled technicians within the region.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer support to this worthwhile Academic initiative, and we look forward to working with the staff and students in developing the production arts skillsets within the region,” says Lee Forde, Creative Technology UAE general manager.
Professor Peter Barlow, SPAA executive director, says, “A massive thank you to our creative industry friends, Creative Technology ME, for this excellent donation of projectors for our students to work with. It is my sincere hope that SPAA graduates will soon be working with them, having acquired the necessary skills, because of Creative Technology’s generosity.”
Jacqui George, Programme Leader (Production Arts) explains, “We are excited for our collaboration with Creative Technology Middle East. With these projectors, our students will be able to enhance their learning and easily access equipment for them to be industry-ready; we look forward to our future partnerships.”
“Our initiative is to inspire and support local students in the UAE and help them on their journey into the events world. The Middle East hosts some fantastic large-scale and innovative events each year,” states Andy Reardon, Creative Technology Middle East managing director.
