In Focus

In Focus will discuss the results of the research, and encourage the sector to reflect on the findings, and investigate new ways to affect change in the industry.

The Barbican, in partnership with Create London, will convene In Focus, a platform for discussing social class within the creative and cultural sector on 27 June, culminating in an evening talk with Reni Eddo-Lodge. Using the Panic! report as a springboard for conversation, the afternoon will host panel discussions and group activities on topics such as meritocracy and leadership, the taste and attitudes of the workforce, and the reality of working class representation in the arts today, as well as a look at the role young people play in this debate.

The event will examine how we work with one another and new initiatives could emerge that go on to support learning around these issues.

The full list of speakers has been announced and can be found here.
