Given the nature of the industry, you’d think that creative people would thrive on change. Surely change is what we are all about? Change gives us opportunities, the chance to make the world work better.
But when it comes to our own ways of working, the people we employ, the places we work and the work that we do, creative people can be find change just as big a challenge as more traditionally conservative industries.
Creative Review have devoted the majority of our August/September issue to this thorny subject. They asked readers to tell them what changes they’d most like to see and they’ve spoken to a range of individuals trying to change the creative industries for the better – whether that’s via improving diversity, culture, education or access. And Creative Review have also looked at how creative people can enact change – in communities and around issues as important as climate change and ocean plastic.
