Redesigning Freelancing: London

Creative UK and the Mayor of London’s Culture Team are delighted to announce a partnership to tackle systemic inequalities and to encourage under-represented groups to enter and stay in roles in the Creative Industries. Together, we are empowering organisations and freelancers working across London’s creative economy to create a more sustainable future for our growing workforce.

On 11 July, freelancers and organisations based in London are invited to join a free online event where we will test, prioritise and develop ideas with the aim of creating a more sustainable creative freelance model. We are keen to hear from freelancers and employers across all the creative sectors including performing arts, music, visual arts, fashion, design and screen.
