Culture24 is committed to increasing the diversity of attendees at arts and heritage workforce events and conferences, so they are representative of the UK as a whole.
We are pleased to announce that a proportion of LGR 2019 Conference tickets will be ‘gifted’, funded by organisations who would like to help bring a more representative mix of people to the event.
Read more about the thinking behind our approach in this post.
Who will receive these tickets?
We’d like these free tickets to go to under-represented groups in the arts and heritage sector workforce, particularly people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, people with disabilities and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
Alternatively, if you believe you are from another group that is under-represented in the arts and heritage sector workforce, we’d love to hear from you.
If you believe you qualify for one of these free tickets and would like to attend the LGR 2019 Conference, please express your interest using this short online form.
Please express your interest as soon as possible. Recipients will be notified on a rolling basis, until all available gifted tickets are allocated.
If you are unsure or have questions, please email Sejul [@] culture24.org.uk.
How can my organisation contribute?
If you’re from an organisation that shares our commitment to increasing the diversity of attendees at arts and heritage workforce events and conferences, we are offering you an opportunity to purchase a ‘gifted’ ticket at the heavily subsidised price of £39 plus VAT. Culture24 is leading this initiative by funding the first three gifted tickets.
This ticket will then be offered to an applicant from an under-represented group in the arts and heritage sector workforce so they may attend the conference for free.
You can purchase gifted tickets via Eventbrite – please select the ‘Gift a ticket’ option.
You do not need to attend the conference to purchase a gifted ticket.
