About this event
Chaired by LUMA Creations’ Creative Director & CEO, Francisco Carrasco, this special event aims to inspire and give food for thought as well as give you the chance to hear from three exceptional individuals about how they have tackled the many obstacles of working in the creative sector. An informal and lively panel discussion where you can join in, ask questions and meet other people starting or growing their own businesses. Including the importance of being able to do things differently and keeping up with the trends and the changes in the industry and the world in these extraordinary times.
For over 25 years, Faith Bebbington has been building an impressive career as a professional sculptor. Working with clients such as ITV, Veolia, the FA (Football Association) for Wembley Stadium and Westminster City Council, her large-scale sculptures made from recycled materials have been exhibited in a myriad of locations across the UK.
Faith’s artistic practice initially stemmed from having cerebral palsy, a disability that made her curious about how people and animals move. Faith explores this through figurative sculptures playing with balance, the process of falling, and capturing sequences of movement whether human or animal.
In 2014 her artistic perspective shifted radically after surviving ‘terminal’ cancer! Faith stopped working with fibreglass resin as her main medium and focused on more sustainable, environmentally friendly ways of working, particularly re-using plastics by breaking the component parts down to then reconstruct them.
