WIA2021 Celebration Programme – Improving Access, Increasing Diversity (Online)

9th November 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This event has been cancelled

How does increasing the diversity of the industry help commissioners, agents and illustrators produce great illustration?

This year, WIA introduced a bursary scheme to increase access, and we encourage illustrators from across the world to apply. This year we had entries from every continent, with increasing numbers from emerging markets.

Increasing access and diversity offers a greater range perspectives, different voices, styles and experiences that all contribute to creating great illustration.

How can we build on progress so far, and what else might need to change?

Speakers include: Dorcas Brown (co-founder, Grand Matter Agency) and Dwuan June (Art Director, Washington Post, USA), with more to be announced.

Booking essential: Tickets £5 AOI Members, £10 Non-Members. To
