Light+ Collective Imaginings Episode 1
Jamila Prowse leads a series of conversations with young and emerging artists, curators and arts professionals, all of whom face specific barriers to accessing the arts. The series consider how these cultural contributors work to break down barriers to the arts through their own work, as well as the strategies and support systems they have personally developed for surviving in the arts.
In light of COVID-19, the series brings together dialogues around the wider precariousness of the arts, and thinks through how and whether artists and arts practitioners are continuing to make work and make ends meet in these increasingly uncertain times.
In the first episode, Jamila speaks to cultural workers about their experiences of navigating the sector, and their imaginings for the future of the arts. Jamila speaks to Lucy Lopez and Rachel Noel about everything from creating communities, to informal meeting spaces, art-world-burnout and carving out space for ourselves and one another.
