A couple of weeks ago I took part in a panel discussion entitled “Art and Feminism” – the last slot of a 2 day Graduates Unleashed event.
I’ve spoken at previous events and always admired Grace Smith – the dynamic young producer who set it up as a student. Our paths have recently crossed again as Grace is one of the emerging producers on Imagineer’s Bridge project. My colleague Lara Ratnaraja and I are running a development programme with them over the course of the year.
I hadn’t really met my fellow panellists before – I’d been at a networking event with Tessa from Birmingham Rep once – and it was an absolute pleasure to hear their perspectives and find out about their work.
It’s a longish watch but worth dipping into to hear about the women who have inspired us, helped us and what we hope for others working in the arts.
