Racism in the arts – reform or revolution?
Anti-Asian sentiment sparked by Covid-19, the Black Lives Matter movement and questions of ongoing racism in the screen and cultural sectors have all created headlines in this crazy year of 2020.
What is the role and responsibility of the creative sector in the fight for racial justice? How can arts and cultural organisations work with Indigenous peoples, people of colour and minority groups in ways that transcend mere gesture and symbolism?
When do we ‘call out’ and when do we ‘call-in’ individuals and organisations? As activists, artists, community members and leaders, should we take the path of reform or instead dismantle the structures that persist in excluding, silencing and harming?
#metoo and sexism in the arts
Women are the biggest consumers of the arts and make up half of Australia’s creative workforce. So why do they earn half what the men earn? Do they not value themselves enough? Why do they struggle to ask for a pay rise?
This seminar will help you bridge the gender gap and climb to the next level. It will outline the value of partnering up with a well-placed mentor, and give you some of those vital ‘soft skills’ needed to better support yourself and others, and counter negative workplace behaviour.
This seminar is for everyone – men and women – who want to empower themselves at work.
