The Engagement Appeal x Alice Garnett: Gen Z Attitudes to Work 

May 2, 2024 | ArtXCity, Investors

By Emmeline Armitage

The meeting point of art and commerce is ever-changing and hard to define. What place does art have in the world of finance? How can young, savvy individuals learn to secure their footing in the world of work through smart investment? What advice do successful entrepreneurs have for the youth of today about finance, culture, and belief in the self? These are all questions ‘Art and the City’ seeks to answer, by interviewing some of the brightest and boldest minds in both the art world and the city.  

In the second part of our double episode, we interview Alice Garnett, a writer and young professional working in the city for a start-up whilst balancing her side hustle of being a columnist. In this episode, we ask Alice specifically about Generation Z’s attitudes towards their work ethic and work-life balance.  

When asked how you divide your time and energy between creative and corporate jobs, Alice admits that it is a struggle to keep the two things going. “One of the main issues is that often I will log off from one job and then have to log straight onto another”. However, although the stress and strain are part of the process, it’s important to set boundaries with your workplace and yourself, to prioritise aspects of your job that bring you joy as well as money.  

Does she have any tips for recent graduates trying to balance their own work with creative outlets? Future-proofing is a thing! It is important to balance learning skills while having to work around certain structures.
