We will be focusing on Black Lives Matter leading the way to a more inclusive creative community. What actions have we seen, and what do we need to see to know that change is being made in East Sussex?
We will have a range of speakers, all of whom will share their experiences and ideas for how we can be a more inclusive creative community that benefits everyone:
– Jenny Williams: Director of Revoluton, founding Director of Take the Space a creative production hub for Black and multi-ethnic talent; as well as an Heritage Fund Consultant on the Register of Support Services (ROSS) supporting Heritage Fund supported projects around the country.
– Deborah Sawyerr: Combines Executive work at Mercury Theatre with senior Talent Recruitment.
– Tarik Elmoutawakil: Artist and producer, and co-founder/co-director of Marlborough Productions.
Following presentations there will be time for questions and then further discussion. This is an opportunity for East Sussex creatives to share our reflections, ideas and highlight the action we can take at individual and organisational level.
There are a small number of £50 bursaries to attend this event for members of the freelance community who are Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic. If you are interested in a bursary please contact the organisers.
The event will be designed and facilitated by Marina Norris (Cultural Baggage) and Jenny Williams (Take the Space – East Sussex, and Creative People & Places Director – East region).
