University Women in the Arts, the one off mentoring scheme to help improve the transition from women studying the arts to working in the arts, has announced its next event.
The event, the tenth in the series of fifteen events, will take place on January 9th at 6pm with Caroline Cooper Charles, former Head of Film at Creative England and film producer.
Caroline Cooper Charles will talk about her own experience in film and offer advice for women wanting to work in film.
Caroline’s experience includes as a film producer, mentor to screenwriters, CEO of Universal Spirits, Head of Creative Development at Warp X and Head of Film of Creative England, which accelerates talent and ideas across tech, games, film and TV.
Jennifer Tuckett, Director of University Women in the Arts, said: “We are delighted to be working with Caroline on our next event. Recent figures show more women study film but less women work in film as directors, writers and in other roles. We hope Caroline will share her own experience and advice from her career as well as offering advice for women wanting to work in film as producers, writers, directors, actors and other roles.”
Recent studies include the BFI Filmography project, which showed the percentage of women in the film in some roles has remained unchanged since the birth of the film industry.
Other University Women in the Arts mentors include Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre, Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director of the English National Ballet, Jude Kelly, Artistic Director of the Southbank Centre and founder of the Women of the World Festival, Joanna Prior, Managing Director of Penguin Books, Amanda Foreman, academic, writer and presenter of “The Ascent of Women”, and others.
