Madani Younis appointed Cultural Ambassador for London

The Bush Theatre is hugely proud that our Artistic Director, Madani Younis, has been appointed by The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, as a cultural ambassador.

As part of a new Cultural Leadership Board, the seventeen cultural ambassadors are experts drawn from across culture and the creative industries to advise the Mayor on issues facing the creative industries and culture sector and help him craft a bold new Culture Strategy for London.

Sadiq Khan, said: “Their collective experience and passion will ensure that we are able to harness the power of culture and creativity to transform communities, drive our capital’s economy and maintain our pre-eminent position on the world stage.”

The group will tackle some of the significant challenges facing culture in the capital in areas such as leadership, talent development, inclusion, innovation and infrastructure. They’ll meet four times a year at City Hall. Madani will continue to champion his vision of a diverse arts sector for all.
