Radical Care

Radical Care was an action research project funded by Creative Scotland.

It aimed to enable organisations in the arts, screen and creative industries to try solutions to help support those working in the creative community with caring responsibilities to be able to better balance professional and personal life.

The projects included residencies and those with an employment and organisational focus.

We commissioned CG Research to conduct an evaluation to identify the overall impact of Radical Care, including learnings that others can draw on to reduce the barriers for those with caregiving responsibilities working in the creative industries.
