As we collectively shuffle towards our festive finish line, taking the time to look back on a year like no other is a welcome reminder of the power of listening in the midst of unrelenting and at times confusing change.

As DEI expert and host of Mixed Company Podcast Kai Deveaux Lawson explained so powerfully: ‘the truth is the best weapon we have’.

While Tik Tok influencer Rob Mayhew’s insight into pace and self-compassion was a compelling reminder that creative careers are increasingly a marathon and not a sprint.

From breakthrough work to the Barbie movie, 2023 was not short on reminders of how the creative industry is capable of shaping culture. Yet as BITE’s Top 10 long reads so aptly underline it’s the people behind the work who successfully drive culture forward and challenge us to approach problems with fresh thinking and renewed energy.
