Vital Hardware is a UK registered charity (No 1194319). Our focus is to provide hardware to talented young people living in disadvantaged communities and accelerate their entry to the UK’s creative sector, ultimately making it a more diverse and inclusive industry.
The creative industry is failing………… the search for home grown talent is getting harder, specifically we are lacking in working class talent, we are lacking ethnically diverse talent, we have built road blocks along the creative career path for underrepresented and disadvantaged communities by making it financially unattainable to even take that first step on the road to being a creative professional.
‘those from a privileged background who are qualified to degree-level or above are 5.5 times as likely to secure a creative role than those of working-class background’*
‘The creative industry should not be for the wealthy it should be for the inspired…’
We are partnering with leading creative industry educators, schools and world class creative business to equip and empower the next generation of creatives to ensure the UK is the most inclusive creative industry in the world.
