This 2nd session will be themed ‘the accessibility of illustration’. Chaired by AOI Board member and Illustrator Montana Forbes, we will look at the misconceptions of entry points into the illustration industry. We will discuss the different routes into illustration, the barriers that might be faced and ultimately how to sustain a career once inside the industry. 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.
