We have temporarily postponed shows, performance training and workshop projects that involve direct contact. However, right now, Diverse City is:

  • Looking after the wellbeing of our family of artists, support workers and production teams.
  • Meeting our financial responsibilities to people who rely on us.
  • Supporting artists, communities and young people at home and online.
  • Testing out new ways to make creative connections digitally.
  • Happy and keen to be useful whilst our teams are healthy and able. Please get in touch with our Joint Artistic Directors at: claire@diversecity.org.uk and jamie@diversecity.org.uk.

We are also starting to:

  • Fundraise, plan and advocate for more equality and diversity in the arts when things re-open.
  • Offer support to communities of people in places locally, regionally and nationally.
  • Share our existing films, music and writing with you at home.
  • Offer work to freelance artists and support workers.
  • Test out ways that we can reach you to reimagine our future with you.

Diverse City is a charity. If you would like to be a part of making a fairer creative future in this country, please become a supporter of our work:
