Let's change the arts

We are changing the world through the arts.
Diversity onstage, off stage and in the audience:
because difference is human.

Let's Create!

We think that lasting change comes from working together to make punchy, bold productions that audiences will love.

When you partner with Diverse City you are meeting the outcomes of Arts Council England’s national cultural strategy.

Engage Creative People through Next Generation – national integrated performing arts training & career development.

Create Cultural Communities through Connecting Communities – co-designed, place-based creative community leadership.

Contribute towards a Creative and Cultural Country through Co Productions – new, integrated, accessible touring shows, at different scales

Change through action – no more lectures: let’s make representation happen.

About Diverse City

Pioneering social change since 2005

We don’t all look, speak or think the same, but looking at representation in the arts, you’d never know it. We believe that the people who create and perform should represent the whole population as it actually is.
