Charity running free DEI training session for creative businesses in Brighton & Hove

News provided by Creative Mentor Network on Tuesday 6th Jun 2023

Creative Mentor Network, a charity dedicated to supporting socioeconomic diversity in the creative industry, is hosting a free workshop with Projects in their co-working spaces in the Lanes. 

The session, Socioeconomic Diversity in Creative Industries: Who's Missing?, which will run from 11am-12pm on Wednesday 14th June, will cover information about the current state of socioeconomic diversity within the creative industries, along with giving businesses more information about the barriers that are currently preventing a key demographic from entering the industry.

This session will have interactive workshop elements to help attendees realise the changes your business could be making to make it more socioeconomically diverse.

This is not the first time Creative Mentor Network has worked with creatives in Brighton & Hove. They have run two mentoring programmes in partnership with Soho House at the Brighton Beach House location, supporting young creatives from the area. A third cohort of Soho Mentorship is due to begin later this year. 

"I think living in Brighton is one the more special places you could explore your creative career, it’s so unique in the way that people express themselves." - Penelope Richards, Mentee, Soho Mentorship Brighton 

"What I've learnt from Creative Mentor Network was how privileged my opportunities were because I had people that really wanted to inspire me into the creative arts who didn’t mind that I said I don’t know what I want to do and I want to experiment. I had connections that could help me find placements and to get started with work experience. I really enjoyed being able to pass that on and delve into the contact that I have and being able to pass that on has been really rewarding." - Mary Kate Trevaskis, Owner of The Tape Agency, Mentor, Soho Mentorship Brighton
