People of colour, disabled and LGBTQ+ creatives are underrepresented in the Arts workforce. Those with these protected characteristics have few role models to look up to and many young creatives face challenges that stop them from progressing into higher education and the industry. If they start further training, they attend institutions that do not fully understand their journeys.
Enter KNOW YOUR WORTH.
This new programme is spearheaded by theatre practitioners and educators Ian Shillito, Sam Punnet and Lisa Stubbs in a new partnership between Lewisham College and Rose Bruford College.
KNOW YOUR WORTH is a creative and cultural industry support and mentorship programme for young underrepresented creatives. This programme runs alongside vocational creative courses, current employment or unemployment. It helps young creatives learn new skills required for further study or employment in the creative, cultural or digital performative sectors
