EEA have been working with dozens of young producers (18-25) around the country. They are a talented bunch who come from diverse places and backgrounds – all keen to put on events and activities that develop culture and activity. Wednesday 19th February we are bringing them together for a day of reflection and forward planning, and would like to invite you to meet them, and discuss some important issues. We will be running EEA’s first ever Creative Rally, using techniques inspired by Open Space and Citizen’s Assembly to ensure equal voice for all participants in the conversation.
We will be asking:
“How can the cultural sector give young producers from different backgrounds the best chance to make exciting, valuable work with communities and ensure they have sustainable careers? And how can they help themselves?”
We only have limited availability so we will be running a first-come-first-serve basis. Please rsvp to [email protected] if you would like to reserve a place.
WHEN: Wednesday 19th February, 3pm – 5pm (followed by drinks)
WHERE: EEA's headquarters at Rothbury Hall, Azof Street London SE100EF
“The cultural sector will only ever be as strong as the talent on which it is built. it is also the case that many creative practitioners and cultural workers, especially those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, D/deaf or disabled people, and those from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds, continue to struggle to develop and sustain financially viable careers. Unless we address this, the cultural sector will fail to achieve its potential.”
