  • 英國研究探討創意產業中的階級失衡

    ◎英國創意產業政策與證據中心發布一份報告建議,向來自工人階級背景的人,開放這些行業(包括音樂),還需要做更多的工作。
    ◎廣泛的研究發現持久的階級失衡。具有特權背景的人找到創意職業的可能性是後者的兩倍以上。他們在該行業的關鍵創意角色中佔據主導地位,塑造了舞台,版面和螢幕上的內容。
    ◎這項研究將人們分為三類:根據父母的工作經歷,來自“特權”背景,“中級”背景和“工人階級”背景的人。
    ◎音樂,表演和視覺藝術行業歸為一類,該報告稱,2019年在這些行業工作的人中有57%來自特權背景,有32%來自中級背景,只有12%來自工人階級背景。2019年的趨勢也令人擔憂,因為2014年,上述的百分比分別為:51%,31%和17%。

    A report published by the UK’s Creative Industries Policy & Evidence Centre yesterday suggests that more needs to be done to open up these industries – music included – to people from working-class backgrounds.
    “Echoing wider research, we find widespread and persistent class imbalances. Those from privileged backgrounds are more than twice as likely to land a job in a creative occupation,” explains its executive summary. “They dominate key creative roles in the sector, shaping what goes on stage, page and screen.”
    The study divides people into three groups: people from ‘privileged’ backgrounds, ‘intermediate’ backgrounds and ‘working-class’ backgrounds, based on their parents’ employment history.
    The music, performing and visual arts industries are grouped together in one category, with the report claiming that 57% of people working in these sectors in 2019 came from privileged backgrounds, 32% from intermediate backgrounds, and just 12% from working-class backgrounds.
    Also concerning are the trends: in 2014 these percentages were 51%, 31% and 17% respectively. There’s much more in the report and this blog post from one of its authors, Heather Carey.
