‘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
We begin our first In Between Time Summit Panel in the certain knowledge that there’s a job to do. We need to commit to deep and ongoing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work: we need to talk about the impacts of racism, ableism, transphobia, sexism and discrimination, and take action to dismantle them. This panel discusses how the creative and business sectors can better listen, better represent, and ensure genuine change is achieved. Kamaljit Kerridge-Poonia chairs a panel of change makers from the arts and media to share thoughts, truths, hopes and tactics around the question To Whose Voices Should We Be Listening?
This event is part of the In Between Time Summit Day 1 programme. The event is included in the 1-Day Ticket and 3-Day Summit Pass OR can be booked separately.
