SIGN of the Times: a Masterclass with Martinique Webb, Apple TV
Are you interested in the demand for diverse creative voices and content? Join us for a free online masterclass with Martinique Webb, Programming Editor at Apple TV and Black@Apple Co-Chair. Martinique will be talking about her career in television broadcasting, how she got there and how diversity is transforming how and what we watch and listen to, and who makes it.
Content is Everything and Martinique’s expansive expertise across broad geographical footprints has always been about elevating amazing narratives and creating “discovery” journeys for new audiences, bringing content provider and consumer together in linear or non linear environments.
She is a passionate advocate and leader of community voices for inclusion and diversity in the workplace, workflows and general inclusive thought through everything. She is a proud member of Pride@Apple, Women@Apple and now Co-Chair for Black@Apple.
Martinique has worked across television broadcasting for 20 years, programming and strategising movies and series for Sky Movies, NBC Universal, Modern Times Group, AMC Networks, Africa Mediaworks and now Apple for nearly 4 years. Born in Birmingham and now a 25 year resident of London, she is passionate about endeavoring to be an agent of change for diverse voices and faces we see on our screens in entertainment.
Hello Culture is an ongoing series of events that explore how digital technologies and media are disrupting the way cultural and heritage organisations produce, interact, create and curate content, by transforming how audiences can connect and engage with cultural experiences.
Physical editions include Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester and it has taken part online as part of the BBC Academy’s Digital Cities Programme.
This masterclass is the second in a new online series curated by Lara Ratnaraja and supported by SIGN. Leaders in the cultural and digital sectors will talk about their work and careers and how they’ve developed this work in terms of diversity, ideas, ambition, commercial and social imperative, marketing and engagement.
