Join the Young Craft Citizens from 6-9pm on Wednesday 2 March for an evening of live music, speed-networking, craft activities, and panel discussions.
Young Craft Citizens (YCC) members Ayesha Patel and Glenda Serwaa Gaspard present We Listen - an evening event curated as part of their Gallery Event Production Placement at the Crafts Council.
Inspired by We Gather - the current exhibition at the Crafts Council Gallery - and with the help of the Crafts Council's young people's producer Youcef Hadjazi, the event will provide a safe space to network, make and share knowledge.
Craft enthusiasts aged 16-30 years old are invited to join the YCC network in conversation with a panel of emerging makers and artists. Come along to hear powerful discussions that centre the experience of Black and Brown wxmen in Britain today and meet fellow creatives from a wide range of backgrounds. Together we'll unpack their creative process and reflect on the realities of navigating industry, politics and social justice.
Guests can also enjoy pop-up henna workshops, free tote bag personalisation, speed networking and more! Sounds will be provided by DJ Yeahitsrenee.
Tickets are free!
