The arts should be a space to expand our horizons, learn about the human condition and challenge our preconceptions and prejudices, but too often minority groups face barriers to working in the creative industries.

Thursday 21st October at 12:30 we’re delighted to be hosting an interview with Adil Mohammed Javed, CEO at Alchemy Arts – a brilliant social enterprise set up to support underrepresented people work in the arts.

They are a business set up to break down barriers, dedicated to reclaiming the narrative, telling forgotten stories, and using the creative industries to raise up voices and empower communities. We’ll be finding out more about their projects which range from, challenging the negative stereotypes of mental health in racialised communities, reducing social isolation in the elderly South Asian community and supporting them to becoming more tech savvy in their flagship project TEK Eagles, Forgotten Soldiers of the War to HerSay a programme supporting women from minority ethnic groups. We’ll also look more at the challenges of working in this space, the importance and limitations of representation and how the social enterprise model can help reduce racial inequalities. Join us for what is sure to be an inspiring and thought provoking discussion
