Tell us about yourself

I'm an artist, a writer, theatre maker and activist I use these as the staple ingredients to run businesses and develop strategies for inclusion that will ultimately save the cultural sector and creative industries so that they continue into the future. I spend all of my waking hours trying to ‘boil the ocean’ 

Why do you think it’s important to see artistic response to social and political events?

As I said above its critical that we invest in potential and ideas that no one else does so that we can revitalise the cultural and creative industries. Social and political artistic response (artivisum) is what we need to make sure that we do not forget the we are humans and have more in common than we are led to believe. 

The Steering Committee

The company directors and panel are involved on an individual capacity, not representing their organisations and on a voluntary basis.

If you are interested in joining the panel in future please email Kathryn Bilyard on kathryn@artcry.co.uk with some information about yourself and why you are interested.
