Value of Inclusion was a day-long conference organised by the Opera and Musical Theatre Forum exploring diversity and inclusion issues in the arts performance sector. Delegates from a wide range of venues and performance groups up and down the country were treated to a rich series of presentations, panel discussions, and thought-provoking debates.
The conference’s scope included ethnicity, gender, and LGBT+, both on-stage and in organisational staff administration. The conference sought to examine what the sector has already achieved in terms of diversity and inclusion, where it needs to go next, and identify what some of the blocks to effecting change are.
I’ve included some of my notes from the day in this blog post. If you were in attendance and would like to add to this collection, please drop me a line at jon.jacob
