Maya Productions’ Pocket Guide to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Role Models and Leaders in the Performing Arts
Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic role models and leaders are important for increasing workforce diversity. Seeing BAME artists in the spotlight builds ambition in young people and motivates individuals to step into a career in the arts. Listening to BAME leaders in positions of power inspires confidence in the ability of the industry to reflect the rich tapestry of our society. Including more BAME workers across the industry takes us closer to the creation of great art that can speak to a wide range of people.
This Pocket Guide shares some findings from a Clore/AHRC funded research project, Where Am I? led by Suzanne Gorman in collaboration with Dr Doris Eikhoff and CAMEo Research Institute for Cultural and Media Economies, University of Leicester.
