Prema Mehta, founder of Stage Sight, says it is critical for art and culture to reach a wider community, and is made by everyone, for everyone.
Change is coming, but we must work together
We must ensure that, when our industry returns to strength, it does so because it includes everyone.
We are talking about the creation of a new identity – about building a sector that reflects our society today.
A new vision to deliver work that is relevant, whist revisiting how we create work under new leadership
