Nicola’s keynotes include but are not limited to:

 

  • Exploring Pillars of Whiteness

The vital role of the Visual Image in breaking down barriers of identity, race and gender

The effects of discrimination overlap and intersect in the experience of marginalised groups – Nicola explores how the power of the visual image communicates important human stories and truths that can help change our perceptions of identity and belonging.

 

  • Why Allyship is a Verb and not a Noun

How the Art of Allyship can unlock diversity and inclusion.

Allyship is fast becoming the key to unlocking the power of diversity.  Nicola considers, through her own personal and professional experience, why helping to build equality and advance the culture of inclusion is so challenging.  She looks at why it’s a lifelong process for us as individuals and as a community but also at the progress we’ve made and how we can build on each step every day.

 

  • Why the Visual Image, and how we see each other, is central to how we understand each other

How successful Mentoring can communicate our untold stories, change the narrative and transform how we see the world and each other

Nicola explores how the images we see form the pictures in our minds.  She has built a reputation as an arts innovator, committed to change and mentoring young people to help them realise their potential and take steps towards creative industry careers, especially where they struggle to see themselves reflected.  In her inspiring talk, she describes how her years of mentoring BAME and disadvantaged young people in her studio and beyond, has informed her own understanding of diversity and inclusion
