Migrants In Culture Survey – Key Research Findings Report- evidence of the impact of the Hostile Environment on the UK cultural sector.
What is the impact of the Hostile Environment on the Cultural Sector?
Your workplace. Your experience.
Earlier this year we partnered with Migrants in Culture, a group of migrants directly experiencing increasing hostility in the cultural sector, to launch a UK-wide survey between May and July 2019 to collect key information on the experiences of all cultural workers, migrant and non-migrant, regarding the impact of the Hostile Environment Policy on the cultural sector.
We wanted to know the scale of the problem; who was being affected, how, and what we could do about it. This report summarises our research, and provides evidence on the impact of the Hostile Environment policy on the cultural sector in the UK. We collected responses from 614 UK Cultural Workers across all areas, from producers, to artistic directors, artists, box office managers, to administrators.
Now the outcomes are here and they are quite sobering. Please follow this link to read the full report and join the Migrants in Culture in action: http://bit.ly/migrantreport
