AllOfUs Redundancy Care Campaign- for Black, Asian, ethnically diverse and migrant colleagues in the cultural sector

They are people working across the UK arts scene as ushers and administrators, in learning and participation and box office roles, and as creatives and craftspeople. The very roles now under threat of redundancy.

#AllOfUs is calling on cultural leaders from across the sector and on everyone who values the arts to personally support this campaign to ensure we don’t lose the gains we’ve made over the last 20 years in diversifying our workforce. Your donation will directly support those in financial crisis, suffering from anxiety and needing practical skills to go back to work.

#AllOfUs will present a series of programmes starting with #HereToStay in August. This will be a 4-week package of practical support to help upskill and empower workers who face employment uncertainty to regain their confidence in the workplace. Recipients will get financial assistance, coaching, mentoring, masterclasses, plus CV and application guidance, delivered by a team of senior arts professionals with a wealth of experience. The programme is open to people working across all art forms, including theatre, music, dance, comedy, museums and galleries.
