Episode 4Expanding horizons
Jan Dalley speaks to two exceptional women: first, Justine Simons, London’s Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries joins the podcast from City Hall to talk about the importance of cultural infrastructure and how she is working with Sadiq Khan to create more space for creatives in London; while in her studio in West London, multi-disciplinary artist Mandy El-Sayegh talks about the performance she’s preparing for London Gallery Weekend.
Jan Dalley speaks to a range of guests about the power of partnership and pioneering endeavours. First up, Jenny Waldman, director of the Art Fund, and Jessica Barrie, a curator at Aberdeen Archives, Galleries and Museums, discuss a new and exciting initiative bringing together London's commercial galleries with public institutions from around the whole country. This is followed by conversations centred around environmental concerns, with leading industry figures Thomas Dane and Victoria Siddall, founders of the Gallery Climate Coalition, talking about how this groundbreaking idea came to fruition and how it's gained traction from solutions-hungry galleries looking for more responsible way to operate; and the artist Haroon Mirza, whose visionary work centres around energy and power, about how a perception shift is needed from within the industry in order to bring about change.
