The arts and culture sector is not working. It is time to design, demand and build a new vision for a transformed sector, underpinned by democracy, liberation and empowerment. In this session arts and culture workers and comrades will raise consciousness, share collective political education and devise a plan to democratise their industry.

Speakers:
Rhiannon White is Co-Artistic Director of Common Wealth Theatre Company, who make site-specific theatre events that are political and address concerns of our times.

Bayryam Mustafa Bayryamali is a visual researcher and an art activist based in London. As a member of the protest group BP or not BP?, he campaigns for reparations of looted objects and end of oil sponsorships in cultural institutions.
