Friday 11 March  |  2pm - 3pm | In person

Nadia Whittome MP

It doesn’t matter if you’re into your music, games or media, come and join us as we chat with the UK's youngest MP as we delve into some some of the real issues around employability and social mobility in the creative industries.

About

At Confetti, we’re committed to Championing Opportunity and Diversity.

We live in a society with bright opportunities for everyone. The creative industries account for approximately 12% of the UK economy (£224.1bn in 2018), but the reality is that access to these opportunities can be limited and challenging for some groups in society.

Nadia Whittome MP

Nadia was elected in 2019 as the Member of Parliament for Nottingham East and at 25 is Parliament’s youngest MP. 

She takes home a workers’ wage as an MP, donating the remainder of her MP salary to local causes.

Before her election, Nadia worked as a hate crime worker in Nottingham, and prior to that as a care worker. Inspired to enter politics in response to the Bedroom Tax, Nadia is a passionate advocate for participatory democracy and remains a committed activist and campaigner on migrants’ rights, workers’ rights, climate justice, and child poverty.
