The Swarovski Foundation is delighted to support Centre for London and this report on social mobility in the creative and cultural industries.
The arts possess a remarkable ability to transform lives for the better, creating change in society and fostering culture, creativity and innovation in young people. Therefore, as a family business and through the work of our Swarovski Foundation, we are committed to removing barriers to entry and expanding opportunities in the arts for all.
Today, understanding and overcoming these barriers remains a major challenge, and for this reason, we are delighted to have supported Centre for London on this ‘Culture Club’ report. This important piece of research shines a light on the issues at play and proposes key recommendations for businesses, organisations and government to drive positive change.
The Swarovski Foundation is pleased to support what we hope will be an important step towards a future in which young people can access cultural and creative courses and jobs regardless of gender, ethnicity or background.
We commend all those who have contributed towards the success of this report – thank you for helping us to move towards our shared vision of creative and cultural opportunities for all.
