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

Making change through the arts

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

Whenever we work in partnership, we embed good practice in whoever we’re working with, so that you can go forwards and hold up high standards too.

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.
