Black History Month: Creative Arts Career Pathways Panel

Location: Boxpark Croydon

7:00pm — 9:00pm

Despite London being one of the global capitals for culture, there’s a huge lack of diversity in the creative industry with BAME (Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic) groups making up only 13% of creative jobs. Whilst there has been some progress in recent years, there are still huge leaps to be made, and the panellists will discuss what changes will make a difference. 

On the panel are three talented Black creatives from London who will come together to explore how access to creative careers can be improved, how to tackle some of the most common challenges faced as a Black individual, and share their own stories and personal advice hoping to inspire those seeking a future in the creative industry. 

Join BOXPARK Croydon from 7pm  - 9pm on Thursday 15th October for an exciting panel discussion. Everyone is welcome.
