Event description

Description

Lights, Camera, No Action? - The Representation of Black Women in British Media, is the first of three panel discussions in our Let's Talk About series. The event will bring together a host of women who work in media from writers, to online content creators, singers, journalists and more for a day of honest discussion, lessons and networking.

We lift the lid on what it is really like to be a young black woman trying to make it into a variety of professions within the media industry. We will also be discussing the support or lack of support shown by the men in our community, try to understand why Black British culture profits everyone but the Black British woman and more!

Be sure to have your questions ready for the panel, expect to meet new people and prepare for a good time






The "Let's Talk About..." series aims to shed some light on the experiences of the Black British women who are creating or have made a name for themselves and want to share their knowledge and experience with others. By providing an open and honest platform, we hope the audience will be able to get answers to the questions they have always wanted to ask.
