Whether you work front of house or behind the scenes; are new to the sector or are a senior leader, everyone has a role to play in making theatre inclusive for all. This course will help you be the change.

The course covers the following areas:

- The case for disability equality at your theatre

- Basic facts and figures and an introduction to your duties under the Equality Act (2010)

- An exploration of tools and resources, including case studies and appropriate terminology

- Discussion of the ‘way we do things’, examining those things we take for granted in our organisations that may be working against our equality aspirations
