Join Indy Hunjan, Corinne Fowler, Skinder Hundal and Karen Patel on 14 July who will be discussing working at the fringes of the creative sector as part of CEDIA launch week.

In this participatory event, we will discuss the ways in which people are delivering their work at the ‘fringes’ of the creative sector in the West Midlands region, outside of the conventional structures and institutions. We ask, what are the challenges of working at the fringes? How are these challenges negotiated and managed? The themes of imagination and representation will guide our discussion, and with the help of the audience, come away with actions or provocations for CEDIA to take forward.

Speakers include: Professor Corinne Fowler, author of Colonial Countryside;  Indy Hunjan, Kala Phool and Skinder Hundal, Director of Arts at British Council.  Chaired by Dr Karen Patel, Research Fellow at Birmingham City University.
