Partnership for London and the Roundhouse’s Self-Made Sector: Working in the creative industries report
This report highlights the many challenges young people, particularly BAME young people and young people from low income households, face in the creative industries.
In the Roundhouse studios, we work with a diverse group of young people, but they’re not reflected in the industry. So this research, led by Partnership for Young London, explores the reasons why young people don’t feel welcome in the industry, or simply don’t know about the opportunities in it. It looks at four areas including, education, representation, stereotypes and the cost – and one of the key things that came out time and time again is that young people feel the only way to get ahead is to do it themselves.
