“My hope is that our audience leaves these events not only inspired to create, but also with genuine opportunities where they are able to pursue their future careers. We aim to challenge the inaccessibility to the creative industries for Black young people, we’ve worked hard to create a valuable offering for them at this year’s festival - whether that be commissioning them to create and showcase their work across established platforms, reaching global audiences and raising their profiles, or hearing from industry professionals about their journeys into the industry.”
