The Arena join us as Media Partner for BDF 2024

The non-profit creative community and mentoring platform join us for BDF 2024. Find out how they are creating lasting and meaningful change for emerging creatives.

The Arena is a non-profit creative community and mentoring platform. Our mission is to arm aspiring creatives with the tools, inspiration and confidence they need to kickstart a creative career, live up to their potential and eventually lift as they climb, holding the door open for the next generation of talent.

The Arena is run by Dom and Lauren, alongside their own creative careers in the world of design and marketing. Together we combine our decade of experience in the creative industry and passion for levelling the playing field to bring about lasting and meaningful change for emerging creatives.

Our Story

What began as a humble passion project in the depths of lockdown quickly evolved into an almighty community of changemakers.

If you cast your mind back to the summer of 2020, The Arena was an online media platform designed to showcase some of our creative heroes, established and emerging alike. The value and inspiration we had from hosting those interviews felt greedy not to share, and so those creative heroes morphed into fantastic mentors and the rest is history.
