Opening Up The Creative Space seminar and Raising The Roof concert were two seminal events held at St George’s Hall in Liverpool on November 1 2018, shining a spotlight on this world-heritage site and marking it as a leader within #Accessibility in #Spaces.

The events brought together participants from across culture and the arts. Speaker panels showcased work-excellence, with representatives from architects, city planners, NGOs, entrepreneurs, private and public businesses to performers and individuals who face barriers to access space.

The host and organiser was Universal Inclusion, led by CEO and Event Executive Producer Jacqueline Winstanley BSc Hons. This year’s production was also held in partnership with the International Council for Caring Communities (ICCC) and Liverpool City Council in support of the ICCC International Student Design Competition Fellowships. They were supported by Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Courage and Sparkle, Disability Today, Disability Rights UK, Evermore Wellbeing, Gooseberry Pink, Jigsaw Medical, LMA Liverpool, Liverpool City Council, Market Accents, Merseyside Woman of the Year (MWOTY), Pink Shoe Club, Soundtrack Recording Studios and St George’s Hall.

The seminar established the conversation for the day. Two speaker panels debated barriers in creating inclusive cities and opportunities; while the first focussed on the build environment, the second discussed the creative field. Both highlighted challenges and personal experiences; discussing how an open creative space will assist in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As Jacqueline said, “The creative space can engage with everyone, young and old. And yet, there still exists an inequality of access to this space. Today’s events set in motion a Paradigm Shift that gives rise to accessibility to spaces that are not constrained by traditional responses to the individual’s uniqueness …and that recognise the direct correlation between opening up the creative space and its impact on health and wellbeing, inclusive economic growth and GDP.”

The Seminar MC was Robert Winstanley and the moderator was Helene Martin Gee. Speakers included Ade Adepitan MBE, Elle Exxe, Ayesha Gavin, James Holt, Grant Logan, Matthew Wadsworth, Jacqueline Winstanley Bsc Hons, Professor Dianne Davis, John Kiehl and Laura Draper.

The seminar was followed by a VIP reception with The Alder Hey Staff Choir by Bernie Whelan. Guests mixed with international talent and speakers before settling down for another stunning concert which brought these concepts to life.

Present for the concert was Cllr Liz Parsons, Cabinet Member for Communities & Partnerships Liverpool City Council, who in her address acknowledged the thought- leadership debated in the afternoon, and the role of the Council in moving towards these goals. Also present was Professor Diane Davis, Founder of ICCC and the International Student Design Competition. She presented the ICCC Caring Citizen of the Humanities awards to Dr Roderick Hackney, a world-renowned architect, leader and influencer, and Gail Jones, the joint-managing director and co-founder of UKFast and a global leader in diversity and inclusion within the tech field. Other distinguished guests included Nancy Chen, Lady Chairman of SEE YEP Chinese Association; Harry Chen, Finance Manager SEE YEP Chinese Association and Linda van Nooijn, Chairman of Pagoda Arts.

The concert featured MC Ade Adepitan MBE with international star performances from Asa Murphy and his Big Band, Matthew Wadsworth, Elle Exxe, Pagoda Chinese Youth Orchestra and Dancers, James Holt, and Napua Davoy with the Liverpool Media Academy (LMA) performers. It also showcased the ICCC International Architectural Student Design Competition Fellows.

Jacqueline added, “I am delighted with the day’s outcomes. We have established new grounds and the conversation has gone beyond the debating platform, reaching a crescendo during the evening’s performances. It showed what can be achieved when those who face barriers are given opportunities. We will now take today’s insights and develop recommendations that will be presented to leaders across business, government and society. This will start the Paradigm Shift where people who face barriers will be seen not as burdens, but as contributing citizens who bring a new and exciting presence to the table. It is a collaborative journey which will lead to a commitment towards innovation within the creation of inclusive cities, helping to achieve the 2020 Agenda within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in line with the 2030 Agenda.”

Universal Inclusion brought together a talented group to assist: Musical Director John Kiehl of Soundtrack Recording Studios; Stage Manager Ellen Kerr from MWOTY and Communications Director Noreen Cesareo from Market Accents. They were supported by Mike Cash; Professor Dianne Davis; Julie Fernandez; Christine Gong from the Chinese Cultural and Art International Organization; Christoff Karla; Professor Gisela Loehlein from the ICCC Student Design Competition; Peter Mathius; Dave Mort from Think Print, Emanuel ‘Manny’ Perlman, Alan Smith, Tony Thompson and Dan White.
