CM Rewind: Spectrum

September 25, 8:30am - 10:15am BST. Hosted at Zoom

part of a series on Spectrum


About the speaker

Earlier this year the world around us got turned on its head. And months later, we’re still finding our way around a new reality that shapeshifts just as it becomes familiar.

Creative work is, in many ways, a response to the world as it is experienced. How then have people managed to create work and bounce ideas off at a time when they’re not able to come together? Where do you seek inspiration when you’re spending months between the same four walls? How have the last few months changed the way you work?

We asked previous speakers Abadesi Osunsade, Hana Walker-Brown, Dr. Mandana Seyfeddinipur and Sam Lee to let us into their creative evolution. Their spectrum of perspectives will help us reflect on our own experience of what’s been the most unprecedented time of our lives.

Join us as we return, realise and reimagine. ** **Zoom link will be shared on Thursday morning
