Providing access to opportunities stretches from career and memorable experiences. Most people from our community rarely get the chance to discover and decide whether an unfamiliar art form is worth considering either for recreational or professional purposes. We very recently facilitated a cultural engagement programme with the English National Opera entitled: #MyFirstOperaExperience where we took 15 people to see their first ever Opera (Porgy and Bess) at London Coliseum. These were people who weren’t keen at first but now form a part of a waiting list of over 100 people interested in the module we have created. Outmoded, traditional ways of engaging new audience does not work in our community. Our cultural engagement team aims to replicate this in several areas of creative art that envisions their audience to reflect a modern day Britain!
