A new podcast led by Jamila Prowse: Lighthouse and Collective Imaginings. A three part series of conversations with young and emerging artists, curators and arts professionals, which explores specific barriers to accessing the arts.
The series will consider how these cultural contributors work to break down barriers to the arts through their own work, as well as the strategies and support systems they have personally developed for surviving in the arts.
Episode 1: 27th January 2021
Jamila speaks to cultural workers about their experiences of navigating the sector, and their imaginings for the future of the arts. Jamila speaks to Lucy Lopez and Rachel Noel about everything from creating communities, to informal meeting spaces, art-world-burnout and carving out space for ourselves and one another.
Episode 2: 10th February 2021
In conversation with Jemma Desai, join the discussion about their experiences of navigating hostile and inhospitable institutions, and ways we have found to protect our imaginations and resist capitalist productivity.

Joined by Deborah Joyce Holman and Rabz Lansiquot, both of whom continue to hold space, build communities and nurture the many people around them through their work as curators and artists. A discussion about collectivising, care and the limits of representation.
