Event Details

As a young person, how do you break into a media industry whose gatekeepers don't represent you?

Join us for the final event in the Fresh Voices series as Guardian multimedia journalist Iman Amrani hosts a panel, including BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter Tiffany Calver; satirist, journalist and documentary producer Alhan Gençay; and journalist and filmmaker Jake Hanrahan; to discuss diversity and access routes into media for young people.

In 2016 the Guardian reported that Creative Access, a charity that helps young black and ethnic minority trainees find paid opportunities, had lost £2m in funding. In 2018 things seemed hardly better: the Sutton Trust found that 51% of leading journalists and 80% of editors are privately educated.

As we head into a new decade, it is essential we address the issues rooted within the media to ask what can be done to diversify an elite, male-dominated and largely white industry. How can younger talent gain access to a landscape that can often feel closed to them? Our panel, which features some of multimedia's most promising talent, will explore. More speakers to be announced.

This event is part of Fresh Voices, which showcases inspirational young people from the worlds of literature, activism, stage, and design.

The event is not-for-profit with an allocation of tickets offered to local youth organisations and charities.

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.

Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. To book a free companion ticket please email
