The role of the arts in social change with Baroness Lola Young
Our guest today is Baroness Lola Young: a British actress, author, Crossbench peer, and Chancellor of the University of Nottingham. This episode is hosted by Dulma Clark, who runs our Livebarefoot Foundation, and explores Baroness Young's history, her role in the House of Lords in relation to modern politics, as well as how the arts, diversity and inclusion can drive social change. Our conversation is connected to Vivobarefoot's recent collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat, and focuses on Baroness Young's experience of reconnecting with Africa through the lens of ethical fashion.
Baroness Young has a passionate desire for businesses to take action for the damage caused to people and planet when their focus is exclusively on financial returns, and forces us to really consider the question - Sustain This?
