People Dem Collective co-commission will be connecting with audiences, artists, curators and creative spaces. Through events and activations, they will create a safe space to encourage a conversation to explore the Black, Brown and Diaspora experience within commissioning and programming.
As part of the programme of events and activations People Dem Collective will be collecting data across Creative Estuary, to establish how creative spaces and curators have responded to the anti-racist movement in 2020 and the deafening call for better representation within the arts. The key questions are: Has there been an impact or change within the art and cultural landscape? How do we ensure artists are elevated and not exploited in times of political crisis? What’s the legacy?
You’ll be able to connect with us and the conversation through podcasts, panels, live case studies and events. There will be invitations to explore and reimagine what a new creative ecosystem might look like and how we can develop a best practice for commissioning and programming for creatives from the Black, Brown and Diaspora communities for real everlasting change and impact.
