A glimpse of tomorrow
Talk | Friday 20 September | 12.30pm | 1 hour
Chineke! founder, Artistic & Executive Director Chi-chi Nwanoku talks about her passionate belief that orchestras – and music and the arts in general – need to do more to provide opportunities and break down barriers for people from diverse backgrounds. Reflecting on the vision and purpose of setting up the Chineke! Foundation which she founded in 2015, she will expand on what it means to be "championing change and celebrating diversity in classical music".
