Diversity and Equality Roundtable: ‘Thinking Globally’

March 11 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The AOI are happy to announce the next set of roundtable talks focussing on Diversity and Equality in Illustration.

The first session of 2021 will be themed ‘Thinking Globally’. Chaired by AOI Board member and Illustrator Montana Forbes, we will look at the impact the extraordinary global changes have had on our work and what it means for our practice. This might be on a practical, or more conceptual basis.

The aim of these roundtable talks is to provide practical support and to produce tangible outcomes which effect meaningful change. The AOI will take away relevant actions to inform and realise its Diversity Action Plan.

The sessions are also intended to be enjoyable, uplifting moments we can share and connect with each other! Each session will be held online, in an inclusive and safe space where illustrators and industry figures can come together to openly discuss issues surrounding diversity and equality in an informal manner.

The agendas for the talks are informed by ongoing discussions among the AOI and its members and, particularly, by the AOI’s commitment to improve diversity and equality in all areas of the Illustration industry. We are encouraged by your continued support and participation.

Sessions will be limited to a small group to allow discussion. RSVP below.

If you have any access requirements, please email.
