Widen your talent pool

View resources

If you always receive submissions from the same kinds of artists and creatives, it may be that you are accessing the same networks. A good way to increase the diversity of your programs and commissions is to widen your talent pool.

How do I do it?

Start with your own industry networks to ask for recommendations of diverse talent. Make use of digital channels, multicultural media and social networks used by diverse communities. Research hashtags and networks specific to your industry to spread the word. Also reach out to organisations who represent artists of colour in your industry. Ask all these networks and contacts to share your opportunities widely.
