Guildhall is one of five drama schools to sign the three-year partnership with the Diversity School Initiative

The Guildhall School is pleased to announce its partnership with the Diversity School Initiative, a non-profit campaign organisation set up to address under-representation and diversity in UK drama schools.

One of five drama schools entering into the three-year partnership, Guildhall’s Drama and Technical Theatre departments will work in collaboration with the Diversity School Initiative.

The partnership includes a programme of events and workshops for staff and students, a mentoring and networking scheme for students across the five schools and outreach activities into schools and colleges, as well as sharing knowledge and information and auditing progress on diversity.

Also joining the initiative are Arts Educational Schools, Bristol Old Vic, Mountview and RADA.

Christian Burgess, Vice-Principal and Director of Drama, said:

“The Guildhall School is proud to be working with The Diversity School Initiative on this vital partnership and programme to address diversity and inclusion in UK drama schools and affect positive change.

There is a strong will throughout the School for our students, staff and curriculum to reflect the people living in our society, and for our culture to be sensitive to the lived experience of all. We welcome The Diversity School Initiative and very much hope that together we can empower artists of the future.”
