Event description

Description


The Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre (PEC) and the Work Foundation are delighted to invite you to the Class in the Creative Industries event.


When: 26th February 2020, 10:30 -13:00

Where: Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, SW1H 0AD London.

The Creative Industries – from film and the wider screen industries to fashion, advertising and the digital economy – are undoubtedly one of the UK’s greatest success stories. Despite this, there are growing concerns that the opportunities created in this vibrant part of the UK economy are ‘out of reach’ for many.

This event will explore the picture of social class in the creative industries, the underlying barriers to inclusion, the interventions we’ve tried, and what we need to do next to ensure the sector provides opportunities for everyone, irrespective of their socio-economic background.

Through this 2.5 hour session, we will:

  • showcase new research from the PEC on the participation, job quality and progression of those from different class backgrounds working in the creative industries;
  • hear from a panel leading figures from government, academia and industry, who will share their views on the issues and what we need to do to address them;
  • explore evidence gaps and future research priorities for the PEC and wider research community.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Dr Neil Lee, Associate Professorm London School of Economics and Political Science
  • Mags Patten, Executive Director Public Policy and Communication, Arts Council England
  • Dr Elinor Owe, Team Leader - Creative Industries & Media Policy, Scottish Government
  • Dr Sam Friedman, LSE and Social Mobility Commission
  • Sarah Gregory, Head of Creative Careers, Creative Industries Federation
  • Heather Carey, Associate, Work Foundation
  • Rebecca Florisson, Policy Advisor, Work Foundation

Hope to see you there!
