In Focus

In FocusIn Focus discussed the results of the research, and encouraged the sector to reflect on the findings, and investigated new ways to affect change in the industry.

The Barbican, in partnership with Create London, convened In Focus, a platform for discussing social class within the creative and cultural sector on 27 June, that culminated in an evening talk with Reni Eddo-Lodge. Using the Panic! report as a springboard for conversation, the afternoon saw 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 examined how we work with one another.

You can hear audio from each of the conversations on the Barbican’s Nothing Concrete podcast here.
