Sixteen diverse new writers announced for ArtsHub

We'll be publishing fresh perspectives from these 16 writers in the coming months, as part of an ongoing initiative with Diversity in Australian Media and Diversity Arts Australia.

Recently on our sister site ScreenHub reader, we’ve been publishing opinion pieces and reviews from diverse writers. These were brought to us by Ana Tiwary, an extraordinary connector of people and ideas, and the founder of Diversity in Australian Media (DAM), a large proactive Facebook community working to make our media better.

Earlier this year we announced that the ScreenHub initiative had expanded to include ArtsHub thanks to the support of Diversity Arts Australia. As part of this partnership, we put out a call for pitches from diverse writers, especially those of colour, covering a variety of subjects. The focus was to be on systemic issues within the arts or screen sectors and we were especially interested in pieces offering not only critique, but ideas and solutions.
