Debut Art / Agents for Change

News hero 422

Début Art is extremely proud to be one of the founding member agencies of Agents for Change.

It is widely recognised that there is a problem around representation in the creative fields, which given the reach and consumption of its outputs has harmful effects on society as well as missed opportunities for individual people and businesses. Agents for Change are taking action to demystify the industry and improve pathways into it.

Agents for Change's current offerings include free portfolio reviews open exclusively to those belonging to typically under-represented groups, honest and open Q&A events, a series of published interviews with established creatives to share their journeys and inspire others, and a central directory of grants and other organisations that can help. We are currently also working on a school outreach plan, and a set of resources and guides about illustration and the surrounding creative industry to be released later this year.

Enormous thanks are due to Grand Matter for spearheading this initiative and for bringing us together. You can find out more via www.diversifyingillustration.com
