Who are we?

There is a known absence of people from working class background in the creative arts with only 12.4% of the work force in creative industries from working class backgrounds. Art is a reflection of our time and If working class people are not given the opportunities their stories are not represented. The 'Working Class Creatives Database' is a platform to share and highlight the work of working class creatives.

What can you do to help? 

This database is about collaboration and opportunity. There are a wide range of creatives from artists and designers to actors, dancers and screenwriters If you are in need of a creative, have opportunities to share or are interested in collaborating with the creatives you can contact them via email on their profile pages.

How do I get Involved?

If you are a working class creative and would like to appear on the database please get in touch.
