Arts Council England are holding a one-day conference in January to help artists, arts organisations, museums and libraries increase diversity in their workforce, leadership, audiences and artistic work. The event is sold out, but you can still join and watch the live stream.
Arts Council England and Nottingham Playhouse present
Live stream – Creative Case: leading diverse futures
Monday 15 January 2018, 11am-5pm
This conference will give you advice and practical actions to create an organisation where diversity isn’t just a buzzword or a quota, but a celebrated and vital part of everything you do. The diversity of our society represents a great opportunity for arts and culture organisations to embrace new voices and ideas, speak to new audiences and get the best from our staff and artists.
Arts Council England’s Chair, Sir Nicholas Serota, will give a keynote speech on the future of our approach to diversity. Other speakers come from the arts and cultural sector and beyond, including:
Vicky McClure, actor (Line of Duty, This is England)
Natalie Ibu, Artistic Director of Tiata Fahodzi
Sandeep Mahal, Director of Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature
Chris Michaels, Digital Director at the National Gallery
Sarah Robertson, Communications and Special Projects Director at Colston Hall
Raj Tulsiani, CEO and founder of recruitment agency Green Park
Aesha Zafar, HR Business Partner at the BBC
Arts leaders funded by the Arts Council Change Makers programme
