Performers’ Alliance APPG inquiry: Breaking the Class Ceiling in the Arts: an inquiry into social mobility in the creative sector
The Performer's Alliance All-Party Parliamentary Group has launched an enquiry into social mobility in the creative sector.
The inquiry aims to build on, bring to wider attention and help to propel the growing body of work undertaken on this issue so far, such as this year’s Panic! Social Class, Taste and Inequalities in the Creative Industries. It will also review what has been achieved since Tracy Brabin and Gloria De Piero’s ‘Acting up’ report last year.
The inquiry will be led by the All-Party Parliamentary Group, engaging MPs and Peers from across the political spectrum on those measures that will make a real difference in securing change. The inquiry will also work closely with the three unions of the Performers’ Alliance – the Musicians’ Union, Equity and the Writers Guild of Great Britain.
