MEAS is a new organisation set up to monitor and report on equality in the arts sector in Ireland, with a particular focus on the literary arts.
We gather quantitative data and prepare annual reports for stakeholders and interested parties to provide an accurate account of the literary landscape in Ireland and to record annual changes.
The primary focus of our first report is on gender in poetry publishing in Ireland.
MEAS, Measuring Equality in the Arts Sector was established in 2018.
From their website:
MEAS prepares interim reports focused on monitoring equality in the literary arts in Ireland, and is open to proposals regarding the preparation of similar reports examining the arts sector in Ireland more generally. These interim reports are subject to revision and finalised versions are published in the MEAS Journal (ISSN 2565-6503).
Our latest reports include:
- Poetry Publishing in Ireland 2018 (March 2019)
- Gender in Poetry Publishing in Ireland 2008-2017 (December 2018)
- Gender in Aosdána 2018 (November 2018)
- Gender in Poetry Publishing in Ireland 2017 (November 2018)
