In a new collaboration between Woolwich Works and the University of Greenwich, this series of interviews offers an opportunity to hear from industry professionals working across the Creative Arts today. Each event will provide an insight into the sector, explore some of its challenges and ask what we might need to prepare to work in the industry and how we can shape its future in the decades to come.

Ola is also a former Associate Director of the Royal Court Theatre, where he worked for 23 years, a patron of Graeae Theatre and Script Yorkshire, and an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. He is also an Alfred Fagon Black Champion of Theatre. Here Ola talks to Nicholas Holden about his extensive and wide-ranging career, and vital influence on British theatre.
Each talk will be followed by networking in the Visitors' Book Café, to help connect guests and share opportunities for collaboration.
