Creative & Cultural Skills

We are extending our invitation to Arts Professional readers. You may have an interest in arts and cultural workforce data to help you inform individual workforce development plans, or associated strategies for regions and/or specific subsectors, with a view to influencing and improving the long term diversity of our workforce.

12th February 2019, 2pm.
Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Broad St, Birmingham, B1 2EP    

We will be joined by Mags Patten, Executive Director Public Policy and Communication at Arts Council England; and Alex Porter-Smith, Co-Founder of High Tide Media speaking at this event, along with performance poet Luke Wright, who will all be talking (and performing!) about diversity in the sector and how our data can help the sector think about diversity to improve entry into and through our workforce.

Our latest findings allow us to see how our workforce is made up by region and nation and how we compare to the rest of the economy.  We hope our findings will help the sector set new benchmarks around diversity and inclusion as well as the growth and development of different subsectors by geography.

We will also be using our launch to highlight the findings from our recent Skills Report published earlier this year, which tells us where the key skills gaps and shortages are.  It makes for an interesting read!

Whilst this event is designed to highlight some crucial findings about our sector, we also hope you’ll use it as an opportunity to network with colleagues across the UK and meet key members of the Creative & Cultural Skills team.

We’d be grateful if you could RSVP to by Friday 18th January.
