- Artists use and perceptions of support

What is Creative Renewal?
Creative Renewal is a programme promoted by EQ to make the arts and entertainment sector more representative of society as a whole. The programme includes research projects aimed at helping the sector understand what the barriers to entering the sector are and pilot programmes that will increase the opportunities available for people working in the arts, entertainment and media sectors.
What is Equal?
The EQUAL project is a part of an initiative for EU member states to work together to develop common solutions to common European problems. This sharing of information, research and experiences will hopefully create new ways to combat labour market discrimination and inequality in the workplace.
