New Deal of the Mind has become The Creative Society
Since founder and CEO Martin Bright wrote the article that kick-started our work, the concept of a New Deal of the Mind has provided a mutually rewarding service in which creative organisations and businesses have directly benefitted from the creation of over 1000 sustainable jobs for young people.
As our work has evolved however, we’ve had to evolve with it, and now need a new way to better reflect the positive outcomes that we as New Deal of the Mind have helped to shape.
We are therefore evolving our brand to become known as The Creative Society with a mission to build and support the creative economy.
Look out for changes across our social media sites – coming very soon.

However, there is one thing in this initiative I find lacking. It’s not just the job market or the government’s plans for employment that is the issue; for me, it goes right back to the education system. (more…)

On Tuesday 14 March the Work and Pensions Select Committee published the Government’s response to their First Report of Session 2010-11, entitled ‘Youth Unemployment and the Future Jobs Fund’. The report is available online here.
Interestingly, the government’s response acknowledged that the cultural sector in particular benefited from the Future Jobs Fund due to employers recruiting from a more diverse workforce than usual. This is something that we have been stressing for a while now – by offering entry level jobs that are not unpaid internships, it is possible to open up the creative industries to a new demographic of people that otherwise would not be able to access the sector. This tackles the problem of fair access to the cultural sector head on.
