In recent weeks, there has been a significant focus on cultural employment in different parts of the world. In late August in India, G20 Culture Ministers made a call to action, urging the integration of decent work goals into ongoing and future cultural policies. They call for adequate remuneration systems, comprehensive social protection, and support for transition to the formal economy where relevant. Additionally, the importance of a just transition to the digital environment is highlighted, along with the need for increased investments in skills training, technical assistance, and lifelong learning opportunities, particularly crucial for women, youth, and marginalised or vulnerable groups within the cultural and creative sectors (CCSs).
