This Monday, 12 September, 500 arts and creative industries professionals will attend the Creative Case for diversity symposium which kicks off the decibel Performing arts showcase week. The event is now sold out, but you can watch online as it happens on the Creative Case website.
The symposium will outline the Arts Council's new perspective on the central role of diversity and equality in the arts and discuss how it can be applied to our work.
In addition to the video stream, the new Creative Case website, run by Disability Arts Online, will host a variety of resources including articles, blogs and case studies to help you to engage with the Creative Case for diversity. You can also follow the discussion and have your say on Twitter with #creativecase.
Speakers at the event include Fiona Gasper from the Royal Exchange theatre, Richard Appignanesi from Third Text, Ngozi Ikoku from the Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival, Deborah Shaw from the RSC and Sue Caro from the BBC. For the full programme visit the Creative Case event page.
The day will also see the launch of two new documents on diversity which are currently available on our website: What is the Creative Case for diversity? and The role of diversity in building adaptive resilience.
