I’ve been keen for a while to set up a network that brings together organisations and individuals, like myself, who are working on programmes with the aim to get young people into arts sector employment and discussing how we can diversify the workforce. Then I discovered that a group already exists, the Routes in Work Network, which I am excited to have now joined. This was set up by Laura Turner-Blake, Curator: Young People’s Programmes at Tate. I attended my first meeting this week for interesting presentations by Jennie Godsalve from Creative & Cultural Skills and Shingirai Sibanda from Create Jobs (A New Direction). There was also an opportunity to connect with members of the group. I’m looking forward to the next meeting already!
