to increasing equality of access to life’s opportunities
Weekends are always a time for reflection, and this weekend was no exception as I planned the week ahead. And what a week to look forward to!
I am blessed to have been introduced to - and worked with - a team that is certainly opening up the creative space.
Our event in Liverpool on November 1st continues the conversation on the intrinsic relationship between policy makers, architects, city planners and individuals who wish to experience this magical space, particularly in relation to the barriers people may face when doing so .
We have brought together some of the most influential change-makers in this arena. The one thing that separates them from everyone else is their ability - not to just talk about creating change, but to actually get out there and bring about sustainable change.
Our Seminar Panels, moderated by leading experts in this field, will look at the Built Environment and the Creative Environment, and the role of future architectural leader. They will introduce delegates to creative excellence from artists and organisations that work tirelessly to remove barriers to a presence in this space, whatever that looks like in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We will hear from Professor Dianne Davis, leading academic, Founder of ICCC International Student Design Competition and ICCC International Fellows; Elle Exxe, incredible female artiste; Equality Champion Napua Davoy, singer, song and musical writer; Ade Adepitan MBE, well known broadcaster, presenter and author; Grant Logan, Founder of Disability Today; James Holt, a talented singer and songwriter; Mathew Wadsworth, a classically-trained lutenist; Laura Draper, designer and ethical entrepreneur; and Ayesha Gavin, an award-winning entrepreneur.
Question and Answer sessions provide both speakers and delegates with real-time input, and an opportunity to debate experiences and put forward proposals for change.
As Founder and CEO of Universal Inclusion, I will introduce a Blueprint for Change. This will bring about the Paradigm Shift needed to open up the Creative Space and take us on the next stage of this ground-breaking journey.
Our event culminates unsurprisingly in the true spirit and essence of change makers - not just talking about it but doing it! “Raising the Roof “ is a spectacular fundraising concert in aid of the ICCC International Architecture Students Design Competition Fellows.
This International Concert showcases Diversity within Culture. Our performer-delegates, who were introduced earlier in the day, take to the stage. They are joined by Asa Murphyand his 16 piece swing Big Band, Bernie Whelan and her Alder Hey Staff Choir, the internationally acclaimed Chinese Pagoda Arts Ensemble and Dancing Group, all orchestrated by our MC Ade Adepitan MBE.
And we will be honouring two individuals with the ICCC Caring Citizen Awards.
If you are committed to increasing equality of access to life’s opportunities, then you will be met with the warmest of welcomes, and a real opportunity to take part in and influence this journey going forward. It really will be a celebration of the true essence of Humanity.
