About

This session will focus on building your own creative platform and business. Drawing on her experience developing AFRICA SALON UK, a global contemporary African arts festival, and other platforms, Ifeanyi Awachie will lead a discussion on creative entrepreneurship as a practice, working outside of institutions as one solution to the problem of institutional anti-Blackness and methods of curating that subvert the white gaze.

This session is aimed at Black curators, producers, and practitioners who lead their own platform, project, collective or organisation. Those with a few years of experience are especially invited to attend, however, the session will also be useful for those just starting out.
