Report: UK Arts Sector Suffers From Under-Investment In Workers

“Many of these barriers are a consequence of the distinctive structure of the creative labour market – the sector is characterised by a prevalence of SMEs [small and medium enterprises], micro-businesses, start-ups, freelancers and project-based work. This structural feature is responsible for an overall market failure in which there is under-investment in human capital, fewer training opportunities, insufficiently structured career progression and unfair access to jobs and opportunities.”
