These young Londoners helped to shape our new festival of night-time cultural events.

What did the Emerge Audience Advisors do?

The Emerge Audience Advisors are a group of people aged 18-30, living in London, who helped to shape the new Emerge festival of night-time events – Lates – at museums, galleries and historic houses. The purpose of these Audience Advisors is to ensure that the festival is created with and for its target audience – young Londoners and their communities.

Supported by Culture24, this group contributed to key decisions during the planning process, sharing views, ideas and suggestions – from event suggestions to ideas about design and branding. The two-night festival launched in London on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 September 2019.

The Audience Advisors include:

Hannah Azuonye

Hannah Azuonye is an actor, musician and freelance digital marketing specialist based in London. She is currently performing in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2019-20 season.

Dami Babalola

Dami Babalola is a marketing professional specialising in the architecture and design sector. She grew up in London after moving from Nigeria with her family. Her hobbies include visiting art galleries and museums, listening to live jazz, yoga and cooking.
