Talk on Women in Creative Industries

  • Talk

Gretchen Landau, Funmilola Fagbamila and Bobette Buster will talk about about what it means to be creative as a woman: in the past, present and future. They discuss the “latest” socio-political and social “changes” in their favour. Are these changes actually helpful and new? Or is it not that history has, time and again, been written in favour of women in certain situations and then revised in retrospect? These powerful women will talk about the power of storytelling and how women are contributing to some of the best streaming content. Spot on for women creating powerful content!
