Why is the ethnic diversity of Renfrewshire’s streets and shops not reflected in its cultural audiences or indeed in its creative community?

As creative practitioners, what can we do to ensure the ethnic diversity in our schools and neighbourhoods is reflected in the audiences, participants, workforce and boards of our cultural providers? How can more black, Asian minority young people be encouraged to choose the arts as a career and what challenges need to be overcome? A panel of diverse voices will give the national picture, share lived experience and offer guidance and insight into how the arts and culture can be more inclusive, representative and enriched.

This webinar is for anyone working in the arts and culture at any level but may also be useful for youth workers, teachers and students in creative disciplines.

Join in the conversation and hear from; Panel Chair, Chigozie Joe Adigwe, New Buddies Officer – Engage Renfrewshire and panel members; Dr Christian Harrison, Programme Leader of the MSc Leadership and Management in the University of the West of Scotland. He is the author of several publications on Leadership, which is his major research interest; Milica Milosevic, Head of Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion at Creative Scotland. Milica has worked in the arts sector for over 20 years; as Senior Relationship Manager for Diversity and Music at Arts Council England, Milica led on diversity, and equality strategy and policy, informing the development and delivery of diversity strategy across England and artist Matt Hickman the lead singer/songwriter of four piece indie-rock outfit Brownbear.

Details of the online platform to join this webinar will be emailed out 3 days prior to the event.
