A survey into the experiences of ethnically diverse scriptwriters in film, gaming, radio, television and theatre.
This survey focuses on the experiences of ethnically diverse scriptwriters across the UK’s industry, including film, gaming, radio, television and theatre. The survey is written by ethnically diverse people, for ethnically diverse people.
Complete the survey to be counted. You will also be in with the chance of winning a £50 voucher for Not On The High Street.
Inc Arts Minds will be offering weekly online drop-in spaces to support anyone who feels that, following the survey, they would benefit from a safe space to discuss their experiences. Find out more below or book a slot here.
The survey is open from 18 January – 1 March 2022. You will be contributing to a ground-breaking study into the experiences of professional scriptwriters from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
The first of its kind in the UK, this survey will lay the groundwork for equitable change across multiple sectors in arts and culture, and bolster the care and workers' rights of ethnically diverse scriptwriters. This survey follows on from a report commissioned by WGGB into the under-representation of women scriptwriters.
It will not tell one story but will acknowledge and bring to light the multitude of experiences across the UK and will form the next phase of WGGB’s Equality Writes campaign to effect change in the industry. All information entered is entirely anonymous and treated with care. The survey and report are produced by Inc Arts, commissioned by WGGB and funded by ALCS.
Inc Arts Minds Drop-in Sessions with Chanua Health
Inc Arts Minds will be offering weekly online drop-in spaces to support anyone who feels that, following the survey, they would benefit from a safe space to discuss their experiences.
The sessions are a group* space with room for up to 6 attendees. The sessions are facilitated by trained Psychotherapists with experiences of working with the effects of racial trauma and the impact of oppressive systems.
If you would like to attend any of the drop-in spaces, dates and further information can be found using this link.
*Whilst a group space can feel daunting, it can offer the chance to connect with others who share similar experiences and reduce the sense of isolation often felt when we're positioned as a minority.
