The Nine Dots Prize is a prize for creative thinking that tackles contemporary societal issues. The aim of the Prize is to promote, encourage and engage innovative thinking to address problems facing the modern world.
We hope to encourage entries from as wide a range of people and perspectives as possible. This podcast talks with three experts about why diversity and inclusion is important for both the Prize and society more generally.
We talk to Bibi Bakare-Yusuf, who is co-founder and publishing director of Cassava Republic Press, and is a Nine Dots Prize Board member. Lee Hall discusses drawing on personal experiences to write Billy Elliot and The Pitman Painters. And Lopa Patel outlines why she co-founded Diversity UK that advocates for improving diversity and inclusion in all walks of life.
