Affinity started off life as Northern Ireland’s first Cultural Diversity Magazine in 2013 – with it’s popular print publication reaching over 10,000 readers each quarter. In 2020, we decided to move online and create a talent database of people from diverse backgrounds who work in television and the creative industries in Northern Ireland, both in front of and behind the camera, to bring forward diverse voices. The Affinity talent database was set up with a desire to put diversity at the forefront of our industry in Northern Ireland, and to professionalise the way TV companies recruit and cast.
“This is a very useful forum and I hope it will play a significant role in taking the debate forward.” | SIMON GOLDRICK, LYRIC THEATRE
“Best of success in your efforts.”
| SENATOR GEORGE J. MITCHELL
“I love the logo; I love the name; I love the mission”
| AARON ECCLES, DRAWN IN PEN PRODUCTIONS
“Affinity provides an excellent insight to both the positive aspects of Northern Ireland as well as the challenges.”
| BRENDAN MOONEY, KAINOS
All the major Indies and Broadcasters in Northern Ireland have access to the Affinity talent database as a tool to recruit and cast for their upcoming programmes. We welcome people of all levels of industry experience. The only pre-requisite being: a responsible approach. Affinity is supported by The Community Relations Council NI and is an UnLtd Award winner.
