The Creative Society is an arts employment charity that helps young people into jobs in the creative and cultural industries.
Sophie Ignatieff, one of our Future Jobs Fund employees now working at the National Theatre, was featured last night on Channel 4 news. The clip highlights the issues around unpaid internships in the arts. It was also good to see Internocracy.org, GraduateFog.co.uk, Internaware.org and Internsanonymous.co.uk all mentioned for their work in this area.
Watch the full clip on Matthew Cain’s blog here: http://blogs.channel4.com/culture/valuable-internship-slave-labour/1850
Matthew finishes his blog post saying the issue of unpaid internships “could even prove to be one of the most significant factors to shape our creative industries in the near future.”
Its great to see some thorough reporting by Channel 4 on this issue.
