Panic! Class, Taste and Inequalities in the Creative Industries report adopts an inter-sectional approach to workforce inequalities. It looks at the social class background of the workforce, and how this intersects with other issues, including attitudes and values, experiences of working for free, social networks, and cultural tastes. As a result, it shows that the cultural and creative sector is marked by significant exclusions of those from working class social origins. It aims to demonstrate how it intersects with other characteristics, primarily gender and ethnicity.
