The Artworks are proud to be part of Agents for Change.
The Artworks are proud to be part of Agents for Change, a new collective of UK artists agencies that are working to increase diversity within the creative industry.
What is Agents For Change?
We are an assembly of illustration-based agencies in the UK, working together with the shared goal of increasing diversity across the creative industry.
We do this through our own individual organisations and the decisions we make, as well as collectively providing support and resources for young people and emerging artists of all ages who belong to typically underrepresented groups.
It’s clear there is a lot to be done in creative fields to better represent our society and achieve an accessible and diverse industry. We want much greater numbers of currently underrepresented people of all ages to thrive within the industry, which includes:
- People of colour (Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic community)
- Those identifying as LGBTQ+
- People living with a learning disability
- People living with a disability
- Refugees or asylum seekers
- Those from lower socio-economic backgrounds
- Young parents or carers
- People without a university education
As agents, our jobs sit within the creative industry representing illustrators, animators, set designers, installation artists and more. But the work we help create is everywhere. We are in a position to affect change in the industry, and together we believe we can really make a difference.
