The leadership and workforce in the arts, museums and libraries are diverse and appropriately skilled
We want to encourage and promote a diverse and appropriate professional workforce in the arts and cultural sector, by supporting investment in leadership development and the creation of fairer entry and progression routes, as well as more diverse leadership and governance. We will provide young people with opportunities to gain employment and progress in arts and cultural careers, and work with partners to build digital skills across the arts, museums and libraries workforce.
What will success look like?
- the leadership and workforce of the arts and cultural sector – and especially the organisations that we invest in – reflect the diversity of the country, indicating that there are fair routes to entry and progression
- our funded organisations demonstrate effective leadership and governance
- the workforce of the arts, museums and libraries is appropriately skilled
