Following on from the success of our first As Lewisham Prepares event, the Mayor’s Culture team, Lewisham Council and the Albany present As Lewisham Prepares II. This second conversation in the series will continue to look behind the scenes of Lewisham’s current and upcoming plans as Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2022, putting the spotlight on unsung heroes – the producers.

Producers are often responsible for bringing new projects, ideas and experiences to the public. They are key to brokering the diverse talents of artists, designers, scientists, academics and volunteers to develop projects that address social, cultural, economic and environmental concerns whilst also holding the highest artistic ambition.

We’ll hear from:

Vicki Amedume, Associate Director, the Albany, London Borough of Culture 2022 – Lewisham

Mimi Findlay, Administrative Producer, the Albany

Kellie Blake, Senior Producer, Lewisham Council

Nancy Stridgen, Culture team, Lewisham Council

Chaired by Beki Bateson, consultant and producer, formally of London International Festival of Theatre.

What is London Borough of Culture?
Launched in 2017, The Mayor of London’s Borough of Culture is a competition that invites London boroughs to submit bids to receive £1.35m funding to stage an ambitious programme of cultural activities. At its heart, it aims to celebrate the unique character of local people and places, and to make culture an integral part of the borough’s future. Lewisham is the current London Borough of Culture, following Brent (2020) and Waltham Forest (2019), and Croydon will take on the mantle in 2023.

We Are Lewisham is presented by Lewisham Council and the Albany as part of the Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2022.
