Voicebox: Identity and Equality
We believe that the arts, and society as a whole, is better when it is diverse. Better representation, equal opportunities, and a voice for everyone should be an expectation, not a pipe dream. There should be more accurate depictions of LGBTQ+ relationships on screen, more BAME talent celebrated in award ceremonies, and more access for disabled people in theatre. People should be able to see themselves represented and acknowledged in society. Our differences are what make us the same, and we should cherish that, and build upon it to make a better world for all.
