The Intrinsic link between the Built Environment and the Creative Space

to increasing equality of access to life’s opportunities

Weekends are always a time for reflection, and this weekend was no exception as I planned the week ahead. And what a week to look forward to!

I am blessed to have been introduced to - and worked with - a team that is certainly opening up the creative space.

Our event in Liverpool on November 1st continues the conversation on the intrinsic relationship between policy makers, architects, city planners and individuals who wish to experience this magical space, particularly in relation to the barriers people may face when doing so .

We have brought together some of the most influential change-makers in this arena. The one thing that separates them from everyone else is their ability - not to just talk about creating change, but to actually get out there and bring about sustainable change.

Our Seminar Panels, moderated by leading experts in this field, will look at the Built Environment and the Creative Environment, and the role of future architectural leader. They will introduce delegates to creative excellence from artists and organisations that work tirelessly to remove barriers to a presence in this space, whatever that looks like in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We will hear from Professor Dianne Davis, leading academic, Founder of ICCC International Student Design Competition and ICCC International Fellows; Elle Exxe, incredible female artiste; Equality Champion Napua Davoy, singer, song and musical writer; Ade Adepitan MBE, well known broadcaster, presenter and author; Grant Logan, Founder of Disability Today; James Holt, a talented singer and songwriter; Mathew Wadsworth, a classically-trained lutenist; Laura Draper, designer and ethical entrepreneur; and Ayesha Gavin, an award-winning entrepreneur.

Question and Answer sessions provide both speakers and delegates with real-time input, and an opportunity to debate experiences and put forward proposals for change.

As Founder and CEO of Universal Inclusion, I will introduce a Blueprint for Change. This will bring about the Paradigm Shift needed to open up the Creative Space and take us on the next stage of this ground-breaking journey.

Our event culminates unsurprisingly in the true spirit and essence of change makers - not just talking about it but doing it!  “Raising the Roof “ is a spectacular fundraising concert in aid of the ICCC International Architecture Students Design Competition Fellows.

This International Concert showcases Diversity within Culture. Our performer-delegates, who were introduced earlier in the day, take to the stage. They are joined by Asa Murphyand his 16 piece swing Big Band, Bernie Whelan and her Alder Hey Staff Choir, the internationally acclaimed Chinese Pagoda Arts Ensemble and Dancing Group, all orchestrated by our MC Ade Adepitan MBE.

And we will be honouring two individuals with the ICCC Caring Citizen Awards.

If you are committed to increasing equality of access to life’s opportunities, then you will be met with the warmest of welcomes, and a real opportunity to take part in and influence this journey going forward. It really will be a celebration of the true essence of Humanity.

Ade Adepitan by IWPhotographic 4 compressedHaving survived polio as a youngster, Ade Adepitan has since succeeded as an international Paralympic wheelchair basketball player and has built up a wealth of Broadcasting experience. Flashback to his early presenting days and some of you may remember him from the CBBC series X-Change and the BBC ‘dancing wheelchairs’ idents. An instantly recognisable face, Ade has travelled the world for his work including the BBC’s internationally known Travel Show exploring the history and cultures behind the globe’s most enticing countries.

Never one to hold back, Ade regularly goes under cover, investigating controversial and ground-breaking stories for Channel 4’s award winning documentary series Dispatches. Recent episodes have seen him confronting the UK’s benefit system’s personal disability allowances. He is also a regular reporter for foreign affairs series Unreported World. Throughout the series, Ade shines a light on shocking hidden truths, exploring the controversial gay scene in Jamaica and unveiling the illegal doping activity of Kenya’s Athletes- a story wildly covered by the press.

Other documentary work includes Ade Adepitan: Journey of my Lifetime, which saw Ade return to Nigeria, the place of his birth to explore the continuing Polio endemic there. He is also a regular reporter for the BBC’s One Show. Ade has hosted countless sporting events including co-hosting the BAFTA award winning coverage of the 2012 Paralympics alongside Clare Balding, The 2014 Sochi Winter Games for Channel 4, The IPC Athletics, The Channel 4 Anniversary Games, The 2016 Invictus Games– created by Prince Harry and of course the 2016 Rio Paralympics.

Ade’s personal sporting achievements include a Bronze in The Athens Paralympics, Silver in the European Championships and Gold in The World Championships. Ade received an MBE in 2005 and was awarded Honorary Doctorates from Loughborough University in 2006 and the University of East London in 2010.

Ade continues to practice his much loved sport of wheelchair basketball and is due to take part in a tournament abroad this year. Ade continues to support a plethora of charities including Amnesty International, Unicef and NSPCC including many other sporting organisations. In 2012 Ade opened the Ade Adepitan Short Break Centre – a community centre in Brent for young people with learning difficulties and physical disabilities. He has recently become a Patron of Rotary International UK and Ireland, supporting the ‘Purple4Polio’ campaign- fighting to eradicate Polio all over the world.

He has done a number of high profile public speaking engagements including the launch of the 2012 Olympic bid. He works extensively in the UK giving motivational speeches to schools, charities and businesses.

Coinciding with the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics, Ade co-hosted The Superhuman’s Show with Alex Brooker. He also joined Anita Rani and Dan Snow for World’s Busiest City: New York - a 3 part series for BBC 2, providing an insight into the transport links, local delicacies and beautiful landscapes the Big Apple has to offer. The successful series returned in 2017- this time Ade and his co-presenters visited 4 of the World's Busiest Cities- Hong Kong, Delhi, Mexico and Moscow. Ade ended 2017 with a bang, presenting Children in Need for the second time alongside Tess Daly. A successful show that raised record-breaking funds of £50.1 million!

So far this year he’s been busy working on a new 4 part documentary for BBC 2 and has released his first Children’s book, Ade’s Amazing Ade-ventures: Battle of the Cyborg Cat. Out now!
