|Starts:||09:30 28 Sep 2021|

The creative sector is a hive of inequality, with the highest average wage being that of a film director at £57,859 per year while the average wage of a fashion designer is £20,716. The sector is also finely balanced between those who are already highly digitally skilled, and thus able to adapt short and long-term digital changes to work, and those who are not. As the Labour Party works on its roadmap for a better future for Britain, how can the Party make sure it delivers better jobs and better work for those in the creative industries while preparing for a digital future?
This panel is part of Policy@Manchester’s activity at the Labour Party Conference Fringe. It is taking place outside the secure zone and no pass is required to attend.
