Top Boy Academy

Want to get your foot in the door of the music, TV & film industries but don't know where to start?
Sign up for Top Boy Academy - a two day programme from NTS and Netflix giving young Londoners insight into the inner workings of the music, tv & film industries.

Expect one-off talks and Q&As from the likes of Top Boy stars Ashley Walters and Micheal Ward, as well as workshops and conversations by NTS' extended family of music insiders. Hear from Skepta's manager Grace Ladoja on how she found her own path to success, or learn how to mix and master a rap track from seasoned drill engineers Sean D and Limitless (who have worked with Headie One, D Block Europe, and Lil Baby to name a few). NTS alumni Tiffany Calver will open up on how she's progressed from an underground DJ to touring the world and hosting on 1Xtra, and filmmaker Jenn Nkiru will be talking about the future of black cinema, amongst many others.

The event is aimed at 16-25 year olds interested in the creative industries, with the full schedule and free tickets released via the Dice app on Friday 20th September.
