In conversation event with the Artistic Director of the Barbican, as part of Making a Living Week at The Cass
As part of Making a Living Week at The Cass, we are delighted to invite the Artistic Director of the Barbican Centre, Louise Jeffreys, to share her experience and discuss what it means to make work as an artist in the 21st century. The talk, on the 28th November at 6pm, will offer an opportunity to find out about Jeffrey's unique insight into the artsworld, sustaining a career in this industry and the role of the arts in an increasingly complex world.
The event , chaired by Dr Jacek Ludwig Scarso, course leader for London Met's Theatre and Film BA, is free to attend and open to the public. It will be particularly relevant to those studying and working in the arts and cultural sector.
Jeffreys began her work for the Barbican in 1999, when she led the newly created BITE (Barbican International Theatre Events) programme. Following executive roles at the Nottingham Playhouse, Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich and English National Opera, she became the Artistic Director of the Barbican in 2015. In this role, she directs the whole artistic programme of the Barbican, thus leading the artistic vision of one of the UK's foremost arts institutions, renowned globally for its groundbreaking programme.
Making a Living week is The Cass’ festival of employability, practice and entrepreneurship. Guest speakers, talks, events, workshops and careers advice is available for all students throughout the week which forms part of part of the London Metropolitan University’s Fast Forward Festival.
