Fee for attendance: £50
Date: Friday 22nd January 2021
The session will be held on Zoom and will be co-facilitated by Rhea Lewis and Saffy Setohy.
In Open Space meetings, participants propose, create and manage their own agenda of parallel sessions around a specific theme. The intention of this Open Space session is to work together in order to understand the barriers and imagine better opportunities for artists/practitioners in the children's sector who identify as BIPOC+, and with lived experience of racism.
There will be 18 participants, with a minimum of 12 places allocated on a first come first served basis through this open call. All participants’ names and feedback gathered will be kept confidential and made anonymous. Contributions will inform future recruitment, call outs and programming plans in the sector.
