In 2016, Diverse Cymru carried out a research project looking at ways to overcome inequality in the film and TV industry in Wales.

Diverse Cymru was commissioned by the Creative Industries Sector team to carry out independent research into diversity in the film and TV industry in Wales.

The project aimed to increase understanding and awareness of under-representation in the film and TV industry in Wales. It gathered and analysed views from members of the public as well as experts in the field to develop an understanding of the barriers and potential solutions.

The researchers looked at the following equality characteristics:

  • age (older and younger people)
  • disability
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation
  • gender reassignment.
They collected the views, experiences and ideas of individuals across Wales and of the organisations who work with them.

In the project report, Diverse Cymru makes recommendations for action to improve the situation. The 9 recommendations in the report are based on the most common solutions suggested by individuals and organisations throughout the project.

Diverse Cymru has a page for this project on their website (external link), with links to useful resources.
