Improving our mental wellbeing

More than half of the creative industry display signs of anxiety or depression. In 2018  Never Not Creative uncovered this alarming fact with its Mentally-Healthy survey.. Since then we've been working with industry partners and passionate volunteers to address stigma, support creatives and provide further education.

Creating better paid internships

Accessibility and opportunity in our industry is slowly rotting away resulting from Unpaid, unstructured internships that are exploitative and elitist.
This dynamic fosters an industry that is only available to those who can afford such internships and jobs.
That's why NNC has created educational resources, Minimum Standards,  and a program template that you can start using tomorrow - for free.

A more inclusive industry

The creative industry needs to join the 21st century when it comes to attitudes and opportunities for women, the LGBTQI community and –let's face it - anyone who isn’t white, middle-class and male.
NNC is working hard in this space to support existing initiatives as well as setting up our own platform, i.e., Never Not International Women's Day.

More human creative-client relationships

Speak to any creative and you will often hear of the challenge in working with clients, and vice versa. That's why NNC is working with people from both sides to create fairer, trusting and respectful relationships that let creativity thrive.
