Dance artist Becky Hill to visit Nottingham for Confetti Industry Week event

Dance sensation Becky Hill won a Brit award last month.

Dance music artist Becky Hill is among 80 creative industry stars and experts coming to Nottingham to inspire students at Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies.

She is part of a series of masterclasses, workshops, talks, and demos during Confetti’s annual Industry Week event.

Now in its 16th year, the event for students runs from Monday 7 March to Friday 11 March.

It will feature a celebration of International Women’s Day, the return of Confetti alumni now successfully working in the industry, and Nottingham East MP Nadia Whittome discussing inclusivity and opportunity.

Dance music sensation Hill will be making a special appearance, fresh off the back of her recent Brit award-winning success.

Alongside manager Alex Martin, she’ll discuss her rise to dominance in the dance music scene, sharing her experience of the business.

Grammy-award winning writer, composer, producer, and performer William Orbit will also be interviewed about his career on stage at Huntingdon Street venue Metronome.

Considered a pioneer of electronic music and one of contemporary pop’s most innovative artists, his career has spanned 40 years during which he has produced some of pop music’s seminal records, including Madonna’s ‘Ray Of Light’ and Blur’s ’13’.

William Orbit is known for his work with artists including Madonna, Blur and Robbie Williams.

Visual effects guru Victor Perez, whose work includes Star Wars Rogue One, documentary filmmaker, Jeanie Finlay (Game of Thrones: The Last Watch), and acclaimed film and TV Directors, Sarmad Masud and Basma Khalifa also feature.

Representatives from games giants Sumo Digital, EA Games, Free Radical and Warlord Games will be offering insights into the global gaming industry.

Esports guests will also appear, including technical director JD Wu, who has worked on the prestigious ‘League of Legends World Championship’, and Kevin Lee, who works as a producer for TSM, the world’s highest-valued esports organisation.

Confetti will also be hosting a special esports invitational, Women in Games Jam.

Confetti Chief Executive Craig Chettle MBE said: “The insights and opportunities our students get into real careers help make Confetti a sought-after place to study.

“Our philosophy is Do it For Real, and Industry Week offers our students an unrivalled chance to meet those working at the top of their game.

“We are thrilled to be able to resume in-person events alongside an online streaming programme that means we can continue to present the most relevant and inspiring industry guests from around the world.”
