This free public discussion will address underlying issues around black, Asian and minority ethnic diversity in both academia and the creative and cultural industries. 'Are the Humanities for Us?' will explore the barriers people from minority ethnic backgrounds may encounter, and why they may be discouraged from setting off down a pathway that leads to them becoming writers, artists, academics, or considering other professions in the creative and cultural industries. What progress has been made so far in tackling these issues? What important changes do we still need to work towards?
This event is part of the Being Human festival and is being run in collaboration with Arts Emergency, an award winning charity and network. The evening will include special contributions and performances from young people who are part of the Arts Emergency mentoring scheme.
Cost: Free of Charge
