Reserve your free ticket now for Empowering BIPOC Storytellers: A Conversation with Arnold Pinnock, September 16 at 5 p.m. CT on Eventbrite. Space is limited.
“Being from the BIPOC community and working in film, we face barriers every day,” says NSI Indigenous programs assistant and event organizer, Sarah Simpson-Yellowquill. “I hope this conversation opens the minds of BIPOC creators, helping them to not be afraid or quiet when it comes to their own stories.”
This online event will stream through Zoom on September 16 at 5 p.m. CT as part of the celebration leading up to Manitoba Culture Days. The event is free and open to BIPOC creators across Canada.
Arnold has built his career over the past three decades with more than 120 credits to his name. His projects include Exit Wounds (Warner Brothers), Baroness von Sketch Show (CBC), Altered Carbon (Netflix) and Life with Derek (Disney).
His current project, The Porter, tells the story of North American railway workers in the 1920s who joined together to create the world’s first Black union.
