New research report published:
Equality and diversity within the arts and cultural sector in England

We've commissioned a new literature and evidence review into diversity in arts and culture. The report establishes a baseline of data, evidence and research about equality and diversity across the arts and cultural sector. It offers a snapshot of current trends and challenges across four key themes: arts and cultural audiences, arts and cultural participation, workforce, and access to finance.

The research considers the evidence base across each of the groups that are protected by equality legislation. However, the Arts Council is also committed to removing socio-economic and educational barriers, so these have also been considered.
