Signifier was launched in 2017 in response to the difficulty that the cultural sector has continued to have in delivering successful diversity policy and practice. Having spent his entire career working in the cultural industries, Ben Ryan, partnered up with Marcus Brown to develop Signifier as an organisation that could offer practical solutions that would lead to sustainable change. As two People of Colour, Ben and Marcus, have a deep routed understanding of some of the challenges faced by margenalised groups engaging with the cultural sector. Having faced these challenges as both members of the general public and as cultural practitioners it has provided them with the passion to see real change and with a nuanced understanding and expertise to lead in this area of work.
