Other information: Summary:
People working in creative occupations are disproportionately from more privileged social class backgrounds, despite the attitudes and beliefs of the sector. Dr Orian Brook and Dr Dave O’Brien, both Chancellor’s Fellows at University of Edinburgh, and Dr Mark Taylor, Senior Lecturer at University of Sheffield, analysed data from the ONS Longitudinal Study (ONS LS) and found that these exclusions have persisted over decades. They argue that this has implications for how social inequalities are represented and reproduced within our culture, the legitimacy of the sector to portray individuals and society, and the positive value of culture for all of society.
