About the Creative & Cultural Skills podcast

Released in 2021, our first podcast series focused on the theme of ‘Build Back Fairer’. We spoke to professionals from across the creative and cultural sector and heard from young people at the start of their careers, to explore the impacts and opportunities that may have been heightened by, or arisen, during the pandemic.

The series was hosted by Rob West, and produced by Jay Sykes. With series voice Posy Jowett, and theme music by Stefano Mastronardi. Jay Sykes is a Freelance Audio Producer and an Academic Tutor based at the University of Sunderland. He specialises in audio drama, documentaries, and podcasting, and has adored being part of this project investigating important questions about the future of our sector.
