We Advocate for Equality

An important part of our role in the sector is to speak clearly, eloquently, and persuasively about the benefits of greater equality and diversity across theatre, the arts, and wider creative industries. We are regular contributors to coverage of the equality and diversity in the national and industry press, we write on the topic ourselves, and speak at events and conferences across the country.
