It’s great to see the Genesis Foundation continuing it’s Genesis Conversations series. In their own words, Genesis Conversations ‘gather cultural leaders around a key issue of the cultural world today and match established well-known figures with emerging talent and mid-career artists.’ Tonight the conversation focused on the value of networks to creative careers, and was chaired by Will Gompertz, Artistic Director of the Barbican. The panel included Sue Emmas, Associate Artistic Director Young Vic, and Creators Programme lead; Jack Gamble, Theatre Director and Founder of the Public Campaign for the Arts; Pip Jamieson, Founder & CEO of The Dots, Jamie Njoku Goodwin, CEO of UK Music; Shanice Mears, Co-founder and Head of Talent, Elephant Room and Audrey Solvar, Founder of Black Creators Matter.
As an added bonus, the pre-talk drink reception gave attendees the chance to visit the Barbican’s incredible conservatory.
The next conversation takes place on 15 November and you can register to view either in person or online – there’s more on genesisfoundation.org.uk.
