The Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries - 40 graduates from low income backgrounds celebrate their participation

This evening, Tuesday 11 October, 40 graduates from low income backgrounds gather in London to celebrate their participation in a singular programme established to stimulate greater socio-economic and cultural diversity in the arts - the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries. The programme saw them recruited, on merit, into paid job roles with 40 leading arts organisations across the UK. These placements, of 6-12 months between April 2015 and September 2016, were all paid at the national living wage - thanks to support from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.
