A one day event to share the practical experiences and research findings from Creative Scotland’s Radical Care programme.
The Radical Care project helped six creative organisations try out solutions to support people with caring responsibilities working in creative fields to better balance professional and personal life. Explore what your organisation can learn from their experience.
Board members, leaders and others with strategy and/or decision making powers are particularly invited to consider examples of inclusion practice that affect artists and the creative workforce which are relevant to both Fair Work and EDI agendas.
