At the start of February we partnered with the Whitechapel Gallery on the first of their Counterpoint Sessions - a series of networking breakfasts and ‘in conversations’ with artists and pioneers from the creative industries. The first session was a conversation between Paloma Strelitz, Founding Member of Assemble and Iwona Blazwick, director of Whitechapel Gallery.
Both women are formidable and it was an absolute pleasure to start the day with an inspiring talk from Paloma and have Iwona guide us through the context around Assemble’s work. The sessions also act as an informal networking breakfast for women to get together in the beautiful surroundings of the gallery before work.
The event was filmed so you can catch the full conversation below.
There’ll be two further Counterpoint Sessions throughout the year, email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to attend either of the sessions.
