Ally Membership is free and you can sign up here. As part of the membership, you will receive our newsletter that details developments around diversity in the UK’s cultural sector.
With the membership, you can also work with Inc Arts UK, hiring us to consult on diversity related issues and initiatives such as:
For a yearly fee, almost all of the above is included. We will support you through reviewing documents and strategies, informal conversations, acting as your industry body for confidential advice, and supporting you on messaging.
There will only be an additional charge for major pieces of work such as large scale training programmes, mediations, bespoke interventions specific to your organisation or co-running major initiatives with you. In these instances a separate consultancy fee will be charged.
This means you are committing to making positive change in the arts and cultural sector. We welcome your partnership with us as an Ally for Change partner.
To work with us:
Our work, and research is built from the perspectives and with the insights of our ethnically diverse members. We do not charge our ethnically diverse members - we do not want to mine the pain of lived experience and ask for payment to do so. We want to work together to make radical change.
Donations to the Inc Arts Minds initiative are separate from both Ally Membership and Ally for Change partnership. We are asking for a separate annual donation to support the emotional well-being of the ethnically diverse workforce who experience racism. We have not specified an amount as we welcome all contributions. However as a guideline it might help you to know that we've gratefully received donations ranging from £200 (from individual producers) to £10,000 from an established production company.
