May 14th 2019 - Bristol
The film and screen sector is at the forefront of Bristol's thriving and creative economy, with growing employment opportunities offered year-on-year. The imminent arrival of Channel 4 in the city and designation of UNESCO City of Film status underlines this.
Yet this is an unequal city and more is needed to give all communities access to opportunities and to make sure that growing businesses can fill skills gap using local talent. Businesses across the sector acknowledge the need to access diverse talent when recruiting and contracting staff, but many do not know the best way to do this,
We will cover the practical steps needed to be taken in order for the private production sector to become more diverse, and consider diversity in terms of both gender and ethnicity.
This event is run by Bristol UNESCO City of Film / Bristol Film Office and ACH / Himilo in partnership with Gapsquare and Ujima Radio, and will take place at the Watershed.
