An open space to discuss your barriers to submitting an expression of interest to The Library Presents Artist Call Outs, with a focus on the barriers faced by creatives who identify as being from minoritized communities, LGBTQIA+, Neuro-divergent, disabled and / or are from working class backgrounds.

The workshop session will offer support to overcome these barriers, and help build confidence, facilitated by Jass Thethi, founder of Intersectional GLAM, the Well Spoken Tokens podcast and the 2021 Disrupt & Empower conference. 

It is also an opportunity to network and share ideas or experiences with other creatives working in the sector.
