Global Symposium on diversity and inclusion

Thanks to the Sphinx Organisation, in association with hosts Southbank Centre, Chineke!, London Music Masters and Sistema Europe, for the recent and first Global Symposium on diversity and Inclusion in Classical Music, held at London’s Southbank Centre on 18 July 2016.

And here are some (very) rough visual notes pulling together some of the conversations:

Global Symposium No. 1 on Diversity & Inclusion - informal sum up 1

Global Symposium No. 1 on Diversity & Inclusion - informal sum up 2

Global Symposium No. 1 on Diversity & Inclusion - informal sum up 3

This was a really energising day, thanks to inspirational voices like trailblazing ‘doers’ Aaron Dworkin, Rosemary Nalden and Chi Chi Nwanoku, and up and coming younger performers like  Braimah Kanneh-Mason and Ravi Veriah Jacques.

Apologies for this rough and ready summary (which omits the actions agreed), and here’s to a more detailed note, and plans for the next convening!
