Easel is a social mobility initiative set up to help further equal opportunity and accessibility within the art industry and support and encourage people from all backgrounds to consider it a viable career choice. We intend to counter the trend that a career in the arts is exclusively for the privileged by providing a free resource to guide and advise all students who wish to pursue a career in the arts, but lack the contacts, knowledge or funds.
