This morning we were lucky enough to welcome the wonderful Jude Kelly CBE, Artistic Director at London’s Southbank Centre, which encompasses the Hayward Gallery, Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Saison Poetry Library and the Arts Council Collection.
She spoke to us as part of our W+Ked internal speaker’s programme, where we invite luminaries to talk about subjects that spark discussion and debate in the agency.
Jude offered an inspiring insight into the curation process at the Southbank Centre, which caters for more than 25 million visitors every year. She also discussed the importance of surrounding yourself with people who make you and your work better: “the best story-telling I can do is by working with people who are not just telling my story.”
A big thanks to Jude for her time.
