How libraries are leading the way with diversity

Sue Williamson, the Arts Council England Director, Libraries and Birmingham, looks at “[…] how the libraries we have welcomed into our National Portfolio are championing diversity, while re-defining what a library is, and what it can be.”

As she says: “In April, six library services across England joined our 2018-22 National Portfolio and must now contribute to our goal of ensuring that great art and culture is available to everyone and reflective of all communities in England. This makes arts and culture in England better in the quality and in the diversity of its audiences. We call this the Creative Case for Diversity.”
