Our focus is to ensure the next generation of screen creatives are as diverse as our community
There has been an increase in the value and appreciation of diverse perspectives in communities, and in storytelling, but there remains a lack of diversity in access to the industry and representation on screen.
There is an emerging appetite for authentic storytelling that comes from lived experiences. Too often stories are told about communities without their input – this can perpetuate negative stereotypes and further reduce opportunities.
We need to ensure the next generation of screen creatives are as diverse as our community. We need to amplify diverse stories made for and by diverse communities.
- To amplify diverse stories made for and by diverse communities
- To offer screen career experience and opportunities for gender diverse, LGBTQI+, disabled and people of different ethnicities and backgrounds
- To provide authentic casting and employment in the screen sector
- To develop empathy and understanding of different life experiences through authentic diverse stories
