Beginning with a panel discussion To Whose Voices Should We Be Listening? led by Diversity Consultant Kamaljit Kerridge-Poonia, exploring truths and tactics for change.
‘It’s not enough for artists and arts workers from BAME backgrounds to have a seat at the table now: let’s delve deeper to ask, how does this table operate? Does it serve the requirements of people from marginalised communities? If the table is not fit for purpose, is a change in the construction of the table required? Or is a table necessary at all?!’ Dr Cecilia Wee, Curator/Researcher & IBT Creative Exchange Lab Mentor
