This submission is made to provide evidence to the inquiry into the social impact of participation in culture and sport, which seeks to investigate ways in which taking part in the arts, cultural activities and sport can have a positive impact on health, community and education.
This submission focuses specifically on the second question posed in the terms of reference: How can access to cultural and sporting professions be improved to enable greater diversity?How can the Government build a pipeline of talent? Specifically, we focus on the cultural professions and workforce diversity. We explain how inequalities arise and outline key steps for addressing them.
