Monday, October 10, 2016   (0 Comments)

Should more be done to increase the diversity of the UK’s art and artists? And if so, what? ArtsProfessional's latest survey focused on diversity in the arts. here are some of the findings:

  • 57% of the 509 UK-based survey respondents said that diversity in relation to artistic work was a top strategic priority for their organisation.

  • 28% said it was ‘important but there are more pressing issues to address’. Many commented that funding and fundraising issues were more pressing, while some respondents indicated that creating “quality” art took precedence over all other concerns.
  • Among respondents who worked in theater or music, 91% said that artistic diversity was either a top priority or important, but among museum workers the proportion was just 68%.
