JSC had the pleasure of covering the Inspiring Women In The Arts event at Tate Modern recently. A client of 5 years, The Education & Employers Taskforce, who run a number of campaigns focused on increasing social justice and opportunity in education, arranged the event and hired me to cover it with stills and video.
Miriam Gonzalez Clegg, who champions the campaign, marshaled a hundred of the most successful women in the arts, from Bafta, the BBC, film, theatre, music, to spend a few hours in the Turbine Hall, talking to over 300 School girls about the opportunities and challenges on the road ahead.
The message was simple, you can achieve so much, if you want to. If you work hard, are smart, listen and learn, you’ll be amazed at what kind of life you can build for yourself. The girls got to meet women who were CEO’s, Directors, entrepreneurs, actors, stars, directors and Dames. Sage advice was everywhere, along with plenty of empowerment.
I provide graphic design and video work for the Taskforce. I took another shooter and provided my client with interviews, stills, social media content for instant broadcast & press, video, and digital content for future campaigns and media library. Enough to tell the story and get more inspiring women to sign up.
