Diversity in the creative and cultural industriesĀ 

Researchers: Anamik Saha, Roaa Ali, Bridget Byrne, Stephanie Guirand 

The project explored how robust moves towards diversity are in a time of crisis within the cultural sector. Working with Creative Access, we investigated the experience of those who have entered the industry via work placements and training schemes, examining the impact of the pandemic on diversity policies. We also explored the impact of the #BlackLivesMatters protests from July 2020 to see the impact this has had on creative careers, after many media and creative organisations released statements in support of the movement. We used in-depth interviews and an online survey.
