As we start to emerge from lockdown, the arts and culture sector is presented with an opportunity to start doing some things differently. With youth unemployment set to rise, what can be done to give real opportunities and jobs to a younger more diverse workforce?
On Wednesday 5th August we had a brilliant line-up of speakers to talk about what can the arts & culture sector do to achieve a more diverse and representative workforce.
