Brilliant Routes: The Art of the Campaign

Brilliant Routes sessions are monthly events to share strategies and learnings from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse leaders.

About this Event

This is the year of the campaign. The global grassroots Black Lives Matter movement has inspired campaigners within the cultural sector to cash in the receipts on years of inequality within the sector. Black, Asian and ethnically diverse sector workers acted urgently to push through a wide range of actions with unprecedented swiftness. Hours of extra-curricular labour was racked up in a matter of weeks birthing hashtags, hundreds of letters demanding accountability, and direct action.

Given the hours of intense labour, this event offers a moment to reflect what on what makes a change-making campaign cut through. What are the actions that lead to systemic change? This session will analyse the tenets of a successful campaign and how such skills might be utilised to create change within our own areas.
