What is The Act For Change Project?
The arts are for EVERYONE, regardless of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, age or disability, and they should reflect the societies we live in.
THE ACT FOR CHANGE PROJECT has a simple mission: to strengthen diversity in the live and recorded arts, and to communicate to the unrepresented audiences that a future exists with them firmly featured in it. To that end we're campaigning to ensure that the live and recorded arts - honestly and without prejudice - represent the Britain we live in today.
