Equity, Inclusion and the Screen Sector

Project Name: Equity, Inclusion and the Screen Sector

Funding Recipient: Diversity Arts Australia

Activity: ‘Equity, Inclusion and the Screen Sector’ is a capacity building program to increase understanding and confidence of the small to medium screen based companies around engaging effectively with cultural and racial diversity – including the persistence of systemic barriers in practices and building culturally safe practices. The program is focused on practical and actionable strategies to make change, from recruitment and leadership to programming and audience development. The focus of the program is on building capacities to work with culturally and linguistically diverse, migrant, POC and refugee communities who are underrepresented in the screen industry, and build knowledge and connections with these communities.

April 2022 Update: The program planning stage has been completed with the engagement of Project Producer Kevin Bathman who is responsible for communications, the EOI process and undertaking online Zoom facilitation; and Dr Gõrkem Acaroglu who has developed the program structure drawing on our previous programs and tailoring it to the screen industries.

June 2022 Update: Fair Play the Masterclass series has launched and EOIs for Fair Play Culture Change program are due by 31 August 2022.
