Interview conversation with: Tanya Compas
24 Nov 2020 via Zoom 

Lizzie Reid talks with Tanya Compas about the importance of trust and conversation in creating genuine connection and impact in the lives of young people.

Interview extract:
"The responsibility of the creative and cultural sector is to ensure they are supporting the right people to deliver the work and for the right reasons. Reflecting on her journey in the influencer and charity sector, Tanya passionately describes the importance of not allowing the power dynamics between grassroots organisations and big brands or funders to overshadow the impact you set out to create. Reminding us that they rely on our community connections to reach new audiences. 
 
With the safety of young people always at the forefront, Tanya very poignantly describes the power of working collectively with those already doing the work on the ground. Emphasizing the responsibility we all have to recognise when to pass the mic, the cheque and the resources."

Interview conversation with: Willkay
19 Nov 2020 via Zoom

Lizzie Reid talks with Willkay about the magic of finding your intuition, the importance of research, and the role of your mentality in carving a successful career.

Interview extract:
"Reflecting on moments of success and darkness, he says “I remember from a certain point just thinking, nothing is going to get in my way.” Using this mentality as motivation, intuition as a guiding light, his knowledge of himself and the industry, Willkay has since worked with the likes of Microsoft, Stormzy, BBC, Adidas, Giggs and Converse to name a few.
 
Recommending we should all learn how to question and talk to ourselves, Willkay explains “it sounds crazy, but especially now a days with everything going on, you need to talk to yourself first to make decisions before you reach out to the world for it to make decisions for you.”

Financial support of freelancers during and beyond COVID-19
8 April 2020 via Zoom

Invited by Lizzie Crump (founder of What's Next) and Sade Brown (founder of Sour Lemons), to speak at the discussion of Art Council England's strategy to sustain the sector during and beyond Covid-19 with DCMS.

I shared my experiences and a poetic statement as a freelance artist who falls through the cracks of government support. I asked for simplicity whilst we endured this time of panic, and to feel as though "there is more than just a boat to shore, but an army of support awaiting our arrival."

I described how at risk we we are of losing the most forward-thinking creative projects and change-makers of our time.

Reminding them, that even though so very few of us would be selected for ACE or government grants, "it is in our blood as freelancers to continue striving to provide and aiming to thrive".

Framed around our key learnings since founding Prgrm2ed Perception, an exhibition platform in 2015 - 2017 showcasing the talent and voices of emerging artists and musicians in response to current socio-political issues. Through the lens of choice, we discussed the importance of identifying obligations vs needs and wants and the difficulty, but necessity, of saying no. Tips on managing pressure by having an honest understanding of how you work and leaving space for mental wellbeing. Getting ok with failure, leaning on your network, and recognising that confidence must be learned.
