Inclusion and Diversity Labs

IVE invite representatives from Yorkshire NPOs to this course of Inclusion and Diversity Labs run by IVE Associate, Sophie Hunter. The first session will also include input from diversity trainer and senior producer at Unlimited Impact, Jo Verrent.

From March 2018, Arts Council England regularly funded organisations are required to implement the Creative Case for Diversity, to put diversity at the heart of the decisions taken about artists commissioned and employed and the programmes presented. Drawing on the peer support format developed through our highly successful Quality Principles programme, IVE are now offering Diversity and Inclusion Labs from autumn 2017. These will provide new space for small groups of arts and cultural organisations to come together, with structured support, to get to grips with the Creative Case for Diversity, and explore ways that inclusion and diversity are approached in their respective organisations. As a group of peers, this is a space to have open and honest conversations, share experiences and learn together. You will be supported to explore diversity in the work you do with, by and for children and young people in a way that is relevant to you and sustainable for your organisation.
