The support and challenge provided by the group became invaluable.
In this piece for Arts Professional, the project team share their learning.
We hope that laying out our process offers a possible roadmap for other organisations in the cultural sector and creative industries that also seek to place equity, diversity and inclusion at the heart of their work.
