Golden Thread Gallery invites you to a series of online discussions about diversity and inclusion in the arts, supported by the Community Foundation NI New Needs fund. These three discussions online are part of a series of events that will encompass webinars, talks and workshops, all focussed on widening participation within the arts sector.

Esther Andare, the gallery’s New Needs Intern, will host the online discussions, exploring what improvements are needed in striving for more inclusivity and engagement for people from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background.

Session 2 aimed at Arts Organisations and we are thrilled that we will be joined by Seema Manchanda to lead the discussion of how organisations are currently addressing diversity.

Seema is an artist, urban planner, Managing Director of The Showroom contemporary art space in London and Chair of the Black Training and Enterprise Group (BTEG), a national race equality charity.

The session will take place via Zoom, and last approx. an hour. Please use this link to register:
