Your Turn To make
A Curator's Perspective
My own experience of working in the arts and choosing it over a 'safe' and traditional career makes this campaign feel relatable. The campaign also feels really important for young people in Birmingham and those engaging with Craftspace's programmes.
Research into systematic inequality shows that working hard to succeed may not even be enough to overcome racial, class, gender, geographical or other obstacles.
Faz's campaign is truly special by showing that building a support network can help on this journey - maybe with a mentor too?
Pause for Thought
When was the last time your parents did something creative?
Could encouraging them to experiment with creativity - whether it's cookery or crafting - help them understand you better?
