Tonic is a national independent organisation and charity that works with the arts and other cultural organisations to achieve greater equality, diversity and inclusion. Initially established in the theatre industry, the success of Tonic’s approach saw demand for our work extend into other areas of the performing arts, particularly dance and opera. Today we continue to work extensively in these fields whilst also increasingly expanding into a range of other areas including music, museums, television drama and the wider cultural sector.
Tonic is now a leading agent for change, with a proven track record of enabling organisations in the arts and cultural sector to deliver lasting, positive results.
We do this in a number of ways including bespoke, affordable training, consultancy and workshops, led by our expert team of trainers and facilitators, and through writing and research, compiling comprehensive resources for the creative sector to use.
Our approach to change involves analysing the underlying principles of an organisation – the working methods, decision-making processes and organisational structures – and showing how these may create barriers to equality, diversity and inclusion. Once these are identified, we can support you and your organisation to move forward and create tangible change.
“Tonic has become increasingly pivotal in helping the entire industry, through organisations and individuals, raise its game.”
Rufus Norris, Director, National Theatre
