Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries Toolkit 2023: Name TBC

Jerwood Arts is working on a new resource for the arts and cultural sector on creating an inclusive workplace, drawing on the current edition of the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries programme.

This resource will reflect and amplify the voices of the 51 Fellows, as well as Fellows from previous editions of the programme, on ‘what works’ in creating an inclusive workplace for people from working class and low socio-economic backgrounds in our sector.

We are currently calling it an ‘anti-toolkit’ to reflect our desire for it to look and feel completely different to our 2019 toolkit Socio-Economic Diversity and Inclusion in the Arts: a Toolkit for Employers. The new version will feature the voices and perspectives of our Fellows who are best placed to know what an inclusive workplace means to them and how employers can provide better support.  The anti-toolkit will cover the end-to-end experience of being a Fellow, including recruitment, induction, support in post, professional development, and onward progression.
