BOOK A FREE VIRTUAL EVENT: SYMPOSIUM 2021 – ‘ALL THAT’S BEEN REVEALED’ CURATED BY JAVAAD ALIPOOR

The Achates Philanthropy Foundation is delighted to be able to announce the programme of its 2021 Symposium – All that’s been revealed… curated by writer and director, Javaad Alipoor.

As the sector seeks to address the role of arts and culture in wider society, we believe it is essential to ensure that there are spaces for discussion about the nature of this change and how it can come about. From 15 to 19 November 2021 we will be presenting a series of nightly conversations for arts professionals, arts attenders and those seeking pathways into the industry. Expect panels of outstanding creatives and thought leaders who are challenging the cultural sector to think differently.

All that’s been revealed… speakers include: Nii Ayikwei Parkes, Syima Aslam, Fehinti Balogun, Andrew Barnett OBE, Andrew Glassford, Róise Goan, Dr Dave O’Brien, Shoshana Polanco, Darren Pritchard, Dr Mariam Rezaei, Abdul Shayek, & Kully Thiarai

All events are free and online.
