Compelling report from Create London & The Guardian on employment, social mobility and demography in the arts.

The most revealing findings of the survey:
- Those that earn over £50,000 p/a are most likely to believe that they got there through hard work, talent and ambition. Those earning under £5,000 p/a are most likely to believe that it’s not about what you know but who you know.
- The majority of white people in the arts don’t acknowledge the barriers facing BAME people trying to find a foothold in the sector.
- Women are more likely than men to have worked in the arts sector for free and once paid are generally paid less than their male counterparts.
