Let’s talk about Diversity
As an attempt to move beyond the discussion of who are being represented on stage and who are not, this two-day international seminar sets out to make the strategies and practices visible for working towards more diversity within our audiences, institutions and artistic practices. Taking into consideration the plurality of both staff members, audience members and local members of the surrounding society this seminar gives insight to different hands-on examples of working with differences in a rewarding way.
It is our ambition to inspire, exchange experiences and collaboratively build new knowledge on the topic of future theatre practices across institutions and countries, and hereby develop new initiatives and networks in the field.
Building knowledge together starts with building a language. What we can say and what not are dilemmas we have all faced in conversations about age, gender, class and ethnic background. These conversations are challenging, and creating change is challenging. Yet failing and not-knowing are cornerstones in making art and also in conversations about diversity. Let’s try to talk about it, and let’s fail together.
We are welcoming all members of the industry regardless of age, ethnicity, sexuality and education.
